AICIS Discuss Controversial Issues and Problems

Reportase: Ikhsan Madjido

INTERNATIONAL Conference of AICIS (Annual International Conference on Islamic Studies) is expected to be brave with controversial issues and problems in discussing Islamic science as a scientific study.

"This is one of the notes of the minister of religious affairs to the AICIS committee," said the Rector of IAIN Palu, Sagaf S Pettalongi after an audience with Minister of Religious Affairs in Jakarta, last week. According to Minister, said Sagaf, because if the science is always in a comfort and calm zone, there will be no dynamics.

"The science must collide so that it lives. "As usual in the science, there must be theses, antithesis, and synthesis," he said. Then, the AICIS event in the future is expected to be able to publish views on Islamic religious understanding in Southeast Asia with various perspectives.

"Minister advised that speakers not only come from academics. But it can come from culture, artists or even business people," he explained.For example, how is the portrait of Islam in Southeast Asia from a Sujiwo Tejo, or the founder of an online motorcycle taxi, or a teenager who represents the millennial generation.

Another note from the minister is that AICIS must also be able to encourage the birth of alternative paradigms or epistemology in Islamic studies.

"In Islamic studies not only be known to think scientifically, deductively and inductively, but there are other choices. Because practice and experience in Islam are not linear. Islam can be understood multi-perspective and multi-disciplinary," he said.

"With the current theme, AICIS must find the characteristics of Islamic diversity in Southeast Asia, as part of a global civilization that has begun to globalize," Sagaf said. AICIS with the theme "Islam in a Globalizing World (Text, Knowledge, and Practice) is planned to be opened by Minister of Religious Affairs Lukman Hakim Saifuddin, at Mercure Hotel Palu on Tuesday, September 18, 2018. Minister Lukman is planned to arrive in Palu on September 17 at 3:30 pm.**
