Abstract

The issue of accusations of heresy against the practice of the Malay community threatens Islamic unity. Although the government has gazetted fatwa to maintain harmony, this issue has not been resolved. Therefore, this study was conducted to analyse accusations of heresy against the practice of the Malay community through mass media discourse. The purpose of the study is to identify the types and forms of current heresy issues and its causes as well as to assist in solving the problem. In terms of methodology, this study is a qualitative study. Data were obtained from the reports of Malay mainstream newspapers such as Utusan Malaysia and Berita Harian as well as tabloid newspapers such as Sinar Harian and Kosmo published from 2011 to 2017. A descriptive analysis was made to provide logical and rational enlightenment using the theory and concept of heresy used in official fatwa in Malaysia. The results showed that there were at least six perspectives that need to be addressed in the issue of heresy, namely the concept of heresy that is not clear or is not acceptable to most people, confusion between the question of heresy and khilafiah, the weaknesses of understanding the concept of real sunnah, the ambiguity of the concept of diffusion between religion and culture, the community’s concerns over the nature of some people obsessed with the understanding regarding heresy, and the public concern about the extreme nature of some parties opposed to those who are considered heretics.
