As believers, people accept religion as originated from God.
However, religion also takes the form as religion of human. That
is, as soon as it moves from the treasure of godhead to humanity
on earth. It means that human could not understand religion
unless within the boundaries of (a limited) human knowledge.
Understood against this background, a follower of religion should
easily be able to accept the fact that among the believers of the
same religion, there are so many differences of opinions.
Furthermore, religion is revealed by God for the wellbeing of men. Therefore, it would be a mistake to develop an understanding of religion which does not stem from human needs. Accordingly, religion has to be interpreted in such a way that it supports the attainment of human happiness. Without it, religion will lose its relevance and felt as no longer having a value in human life.
This book discusses interpretations of religion and how interpretations of religion can be attempted to respond real human needs of our time.
This book is a successful endeavor in popularizing the otherwise
difficult topic of sufistic epistemology along a school of thought
called Isyraqiyya or Hikmah in which the experience of Sufism—
which is usually considered to be ineffable—is attempted to be
understood within the normal logical-propositional language.
The main thinker whose thoughts are analyzed in this book are Mulla Shadra and Suhrawardi. In their thoughts, not only that the sufistic experience is believed to be communicable, there also opens a possibility of further investigation towards an understanding of this particular experience as a source and method of acquiring knowledge that fulfills the requirements of modern philosophy of science.
The author of this book has a concern for positive Sufism and Islamic philosophy. This book is his effort to show salat (prayer) as an answer to the existential and intellectual needs of modern human life for happiness and enlightenment. Divided into two parts, the first part describes the nature and true meaning of salat, which is to bring out happiness as the consequences of its social commitment. The second part, the most important part of this book, is explanation and guidance from great mystics and philosophers about what and how the real salat is.
Al-Qur’an and Hadith teach the perfect Islamic character. However, a minority group among muslim people fond of displaying hateful writing to the tarnish of the face of Islam which is the grace for the whole universe. This book reminds us about the importance of tolerance and togetherness in diversity. Differences in ethnicity, religion, race, or intergroup, cannot be reasons for violence, denunciation, and hostility toward others. Through a review of the two main books on Islam and classical works, this book is important to be infused by anyone who wants peace.
Tasawuf is the inner aspect of Islamic spirituality. In the triangle scheme of islam-iman-ihsan, Sufism (tasawwuf) is a manifestation of ihsan. Sufism need to be positioned as a kind of paradigm or worldview, because nowadays religion is seen as unable to offer freshness to the spiritual thirst of mankind. Law-oriented and theological modes of religion tend to make religion difficult, masculine, and exclusive. With a paradigm that emphasizes love (mercy), Sufism is expected to offer a solution to the humanitarian crisis today which is characterized by a variety of violence, including violence in the name of religion which is increasing in various parts of the world.
People increasingly realize the importance of a holistic lifestyle
that is not only concerned with the material aspects, but also
emphasize the importance of spiritual life in achieving complete
health. However, in reality, most people are unable to integrate
both sides of life. The current paradigm of modern science still
unable to combine them together.
This book discusses a new discourse in spiritual health. The author, a leading Indonesian neuroscience expert, explained the developments of science, including the new discipline of spiritual neuroscience, which show the close relationship between spirituality, how the brain works, and health. This book will show how brain works in religious life, ways to improve the quality of spirituality, the role of the meaning of life to health, and measures to achieve spiritual health.

Is it true that science is incompatible with religion? Is Ashabul Kahfi in Al Quran just a story? What is the “seven skies” in Islam?

“I only hear what my heart says and I’m not even sure whether it’s the voice of my conscience or it’s just my anxiety.” (page 127)
“Most of us often listen to our faint voices of conscious. Only
those who never get tired of searching for their inner-selves who
dare to follow their hearts.”
—Brigitta Isworo Laksmi, Kompas journalist

“I wonder whether concerns toward Islam, which is clearly described by Zaim in this book, is felt by many people—they’re just afraid to express their concerns publicly. Exactly at this point the book is an important read, at least to dare us to try looking for the most honest response about our own faith.”
—Debra H Yatim, journalist, social activist in the field of women’s empowerment, art, and culture.
“This is an exciting book for those who are interested in spiritual activities. Zaim, the author, tells us about his unique life-journey. We will see clearly that he is a very determined person and that’s why he looks anti-mainstream and ready to take serious risks. As an admirer of Gus Dur, he found real spirituality that brings love without boundaries and peace for everyone.”
—Monk Dharmavimala, Deputy Head of Ekayana Buddhist Centre

Marketing in Indonesia begins to show signs of movement
from the national market to emotional, even spiritual market.
If the rational consumer market buy goods or services by
rational considerations (eg, function and price), the emotional
market buy with emotional considerations (eg, personal taste,
prestige, self-image), while spiritual consumer market consider
the value (good-bad, halal-haram). This perhaps explains why

“Inhale only Love.” -Rumi
There is almost nothing else, apart from love, that we can convey when we talk about Rumi. His life story, all of it, is about Love. Love towards God and love towards humans, the lovers of God.
Therefore, for Rumi, life is actually all about reaching for such pure loves. Love at its finest. Without it, both life and death will only signify destruction, when the latter should signify our return to our own Ocean of Unlimited Resource—our primordial Longing. Because for lovers, our physical death actually is only the sign of the beginning of life. Rumi indeed often calls love as “our life (Spring)”.
Continuing on Learning to Live from Rumi, and still containing his pieces of enlightening and soul-soothing poems, this Devouring Rumi’s Love book particularly gives attention to Rumi’s musings on love, apart from still sharing the sufi poet’s advices on reaching for a life that can offer true happiness.
Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273) is a Persian sufi poet, one of those who represent the top of Islamic literature treasures. The “saint” from East—predicted by Fariduddin Attar to be a distinguished figure who would ignite the passionate flame of divinity throughout the world ever since he was a boy—described by Unesco as “a humanist, philosopher and prominent poet who belongs to all mankind”. His name is eternally attached in the hearts of many people all over the world, regardless of their religion due to gleaming of his poems and their meanings that pierce through our consciousness.
There hasn’t been any book that discusses the thoughts of Syaikh
al-Akbar Ibn ‘Arabi in a relatively systematic and comprehensive
way in Indonesian. This book is an introduction to the thinkings of
this ‘Ârif that are as deep and vast as the ocean.
Apart from getting the general ideas that are relatively easier to understand, complete, profound and accurate, readers will also be able to enjoy the “daily Ibn ‘Arabi” menu served in the book. Pearls of wisdom that enlighten the mind and soul are scattered everywhere, guiding us to the understanding of various mysteries of our lives.
The title of The Universe of Love refers to the central point of Ibn ‘Arabi’s thoughts on love as the subject of understanding about Islam in all of its aspects, as well as being the context of the whole discussion in this book.
The Sufi’s possession is not only ink and letters,
but a heart white as snow.
The scholar’s possession is pen-marks.
What is the Sufi’s possession?
Rumi is not an ‘irfaan author like Ibn ‘Arabi—who writes many volumes of books. Rumi’s main work is Masnavi, a collection of poems, from which the quotes in this book are taken from. However, it is exactly due to the efficiency of the medium of poetry that Rumi is able to express what are said in the many volumes of books of an ‘arif like Ibn ‘Arabi, into poems that are relatively much shorter.
In this book, Haidar Bagir explains the principles of tasawwuf in concise, accessible and systematic way through the beauty of Rumi’s poems
Schools in their current form can’t entirely be replaced, although
there are actually still many basic mistakes about schools that
need to be corrected, both conceptual and practical. For instance,
ambiguity on the purpose of education, misunderstanding on the
essence of humanity as the subject of education, the vagueness
surrounding the nature of learning process and lack of proper
educating methods. Therefore, we can only hope that school
will become more suitable with how an education institution on
mankind is supposed to run if we continually criticizing it.
That’s the only way, with all its limitations, that today’s schools can be restored as much as possible as a place to educate its pupils and turn them into independent human beings who are able to maintain or even develop their spirituality to the best of their ability; who are able to reach happiness for their ability to control themselves, and to give as big a positive contribution as possible for their community.
Therefore, readers shall read the book in this context.

Death is a definite thing for humans. However, talking about
mortality causes deep sadness and denial inside our soul, because
of the realization and belief that when our time comes, gone are
everything and everyone we love in our lives. It triggers a rejection
in ourselves—none of us is looking forward to die. Each and every
one of us is willing to try everything to cheat death.
In this national bestselling book, Komaruddin Hidayat makes all those harrowing shadows of death vanished. He can prove that, in fact, death is a sacred, beautiful thing. Understanding the truth about death can make us more optimistic.
“If one identifies self with material manifestations then be prepared
to be disappointed and bruised. When other people compliment
his car, he’ll feel complimented too. But when his car crashes and is
dented, so will himself. As if his car and himself are one.”
That illustrates how fragile material identities are when they are not propped up by a happy mindset. Yes, mindset. Not merely knowledge on happiness that’s easily forgotten, the points of happy mindset are:
• Love your heart (divinity soul), the source of gratefulness and love towards God that will always result in a passion for life, endurance and hope. It is this strength that will defeat many life fluctuations, so that physical things won’t affect our happiness at all.
• Take care and love the gift of your body with medically good and halal food, so that it is able to prop and support the health of the souls that grow inside it.
These are the results of Prof. Dr. Komaruddin Hidayat’s experience and musings on the true identities of human beings, on the viruses that destruct happiness and eventually on the mindset of happiness.
Humans, the masterpiece of creation in the whole universe, are
created with reason incorporated in them—by which humans
are expected to fulfill the purpose of their creation: “I created
everything for you, and you for Me” (Hadith Qudsi).
However, do humans always realise the noble purpose of their creation? Or are they more often trapped in the blind spot that only make them running in circles and finally caught in their own life prison? Prominent sufi Jalaluddin Rumi cites this condition in his poem:
for a long time you’ve been trapped in a small pool
when I’ve been here, a pouring ocean
come, reunite with Me
leave all worldly foolishness,
come with Me.
In this book, Prof. Komaruddin Hidayat tries to explain all the Prisons of Life that shackle us from reaching true happiness, which is none other than the purpose of the creation of us—a devotion towards Him.
”For more than 14 centuries, the order to do Tahajjud and
advantages have been taught from generation to generation.
Both the Quran and the Hadith states the great power of Tahajjud
prayer for our soul. As time goes by, various analyses about the
advantages of Tahajjud prayer have started to emerge, including
this book which discusses the subject from medical
and academic points of view.”
—Prof. Dr. Komaruddin Hidayat
Bestselling author of Psikologi Kematian (The Psychology of Death)
”This book is an integration of science and religion. It scientifically proves the ability of Tahajjud prayer to improve our immunity system.”
—Prof. Dr. Dr. H. Dadang Hawari
“This discovery is relatively new in the medical field. Even more special, in Airlangga University, Sholeh is the only ‘outsider’ who successfully receives a Ph.D.” —Suara Hidayatullah Magazine
“This book makes our scientists realise that Islam is holistic. The figure of Avicenne—a doctor, philosopher, and sufi —is alive again through this book. Tahajjud is an empirical, physical, emotional, and spiritual therapy.”
—Dr. Asep Usman Ismail
Tasawwuf lecturer at UIN Jakarta
Wildan Mukhallad, a star student at Al-Azhar University in Cairo is
suddenly missing. There isn’t any information at all and no one can

are several star Indonesian students spread in various top overseas
universities who are also encouraged to join the ISIS.

What will actually happen when two Islamic school students use their knowledge in their own ways? Noor Huda tells the story about him and Fadlullah Hasan with empathy and sympathy, leaving us to contemplate about terrorism, jihad, Islam and the meaning of friendship.
“A narrative style like Akira Kurosawa’s famous film Rashomon
makes this book a compelling read. Noor Huda also reminds us
that in each act of violence, there will be victims
in all parties involved.”
—Riri Riza, movie director
“A deep journalistic investigation as well as a very personal account of someone who chose the path of terrorism in the name of Islam. Little did he know that such act disrupts peace and causes many children to live as an orphan, physically and socially.”
—A. Fuadi, author of The Land of 5 Towers
Don’t enter a system that makes you want to give vent to
emotions. Instead, choose to be around close friends who
encourage you to control yourself. Because Islam is about
controlling, not releasing. We need to know when to charge ahead
in life and when to step on the brakes.

An inspiring, record-breaking bestseller—and a modern-day fairy tale Published in Indonesia in 2005, The Rainbow Troops, Andrea Hirata’s autobiographical debut novel, sold more than five million copies, shattering records. Now it promises to captivate audiences around the globe. Ikal is a student at the poorest village school on the Indonesian island of Belitong, where graduating from sixth grade is considered remarkable. His school is under constant threat of closure. Ikal and his friends—a group nicknamed the Rainbow Troops—face threats from every angle: skeptical government officials, greedy corporations, deepening poverty, crumbling infrastructure, and their own low self-confidence. But the students also have hope, which comes in the form of two extraordinary teachers, and Ikal’s education in and out of the classroom is an uplifting one. We root for him as he defies the island’s tin mine officials. We meet his first love, the unseen girl who sells chalk from behind a shop screen, whose pretty hands capture Ikal’s heart. We cheer for Lintang, the class’s barefoot math genius, as he beats the students of the mining corporation’s school in an academic challenge. Above all, we gain an intimate acquaintance with the customs and people of the world’s largest Muslim society. This is classic a storytelling in the spirit of Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner: an engrossing depiction of a milieu we have never encountered before, bursting with charm and verve.
Alright, Pal. Let me tell you about my battle against a pomegranate
tree in my backyard and how it got me arrested.
I really hate that tree. I mean, just take a look at it! That tree looks like it’s being cursed. The trunk is bumpy, the branches are droop, the twigs are awkward, the bark is wrinkled, the leaves are tangled. Every Thursday night the crows are crying on top of it, calling the reaper. I don’t want to get any closer around that tree because I know it is inhabited by ghost.
In this novel, Andrea will make us laugh out loud with the stories of innocent Melayu people in the heartland of Belitong, sob with the sad love story, or amazed with their extraordinary intrigues. We will find imperfect people, but also find the wisdom in them.

What is a soulmate? Perhaps you often wonder about it.
Perhaps your imagination of your soulmate is quite simple: you’re dreaming that there is someone out there, in a beach, waiting for you to sail together. But in the same time, you hesitate and all you could do is just waiting, hoping that person would build the boat, row the paddle, and set the compass to pick you up. Yet, the sea, the waves, and everything inside it had always been an unpredictable mystery, hasn’t it?

When we should challenge our fate, hand lines, and astrological sign?
