Islam Friendly

Islam Friendly
REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, by KH Said Aqil Siradj
Yes Islam Islam. That speech is often ejected from some Muslims. True, which is believed and practiced Islam certainly has the characteristics of a "patent". Although, the fact that schools vary according to Muslim practice that was followed. This is natural as a form of universal interpretation of Islamic teachings. Here, the point to note is how the practice of Islam is beautiful, empathetic, polite, and do not exceed the limit.
We realize that to understand Islam and the legal-formal tekstualistik often bring extreme position and beyond. In fact, the Qur'an does not legitimize the least of all behaviors and attitudes that go beyond the limit.
In this case, there are three attitudes that are categorized as "overshoot". First, ghuluw. Namely, the form of human expression in response to excessive problems to manifest in the attitudes of humanity outside the limits of normality. Second, tatharruf, which is excessive because of the emotional attitude that implies empathy excessive and outrageous cynicism from the public.
Third, irhab. It is too inviting concern because it could be justified violence in the name of a particular religion or ideology. Irhab was excessive attitudes and actions because of the encouragement of religion or ideology. "O People of the Book, do not transgress the limits in your religion nor say about Allah except the truth." (Sura al-Nisa ': 171).
Ideally, a Muslim must explore and understand the teachings of Islam in a comprehensive, complete, up to that teaching positive social impact for him. As mentioned in the Qur'an, which digest the divine texts objectively, a clean heart, rational, to be able to bring the wisdom contained therein.
How dry and gersangnya this religion if it turns out in the exoteric aspects of Islam was limited to legal-formal and tekstualistik and tendency. A verse about jihad, for example, will feel barren and dry if his understanding was monopolized by the interpretation "arms war". In fact, jihad at the time of the Prophet is a realization and manifestation of the liberation of the people to remove discrimination and protect people's rights for the establishment of a civilized society.
The culmination of one's religious perfection lies in the ability to understand the teachings of Islam and observe them so that the wise and prudent attitude (al-wisdom) can be sticking out in all the understanding and interpretation.
Here, the need to put forward the friendly face of Islam. Emphasis on the face of Islam is a methodology concerning the esoteric aspect of Islam is generally called the Sufi approach. Islam-friendly attitude is a manifestation of an inclusive and moderate Islam.
The characteristics keberislaman like this is that put forward the delivery of mission qaulan Karima (a noble sayings), qaulan ma'rufa (good words), qaulan maisura (appropriate word), qaulan layyinan (gentle words), qaulan baligha (words are etched on the soul), and qaulan tsaqila (heavy word). This is the religious attitudes as mandated by the Qur'an and Sunnah.
