The culturalization of the sect of Shafi'i in forming harmony in the Malay society in Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Sect of Shafi'i is regarded as synonymous in the Malay community since the development of the Muslim teaching through local missionaries and religious teachers. Therefore, Shafi'i based-practices are very much inculcated within the Muslim Malay community in this country, as well as the fact that they are able to instill the sense of unity and harmony. Therefore, it needs to be maintained and nourished within the people of the mass. Something that is different or deviates from the norms of the sect of Shafi'i will sometimes evoke unpleasant feelings and discomfort among them. Baseless suspicions will bring about accusations that can break apart Malay unity and will certainly leave a long-lasting negative impact to the Muslim community itself. The main methodologies used in this article are field study and analysing previous written materials. The information obtained was edited and analysed qualitatively. The common approach adopted in the historical analysis is the multi-dimensional approach, done towards the complex phenomena, in order for it to be able to be edited effectively. Thus, this article will prove that the uniformity of practice to the particular sect is able to inculcate harmony and prosperity in the Malay society. Apart from that, this article should be able to depict the adherence of religious institutions to the fundamental stance of the Shafi'i sect, not because of their succumbing to the sect blindly, but sometimes, the consideration also lies in the environment of the society that have long accepted the doctrine as long as they can remember.
