Expert Profile


My Islamic studies background is from traditional teaching in madrasah in Indonesia, from Pondok Pesantren Al-Amin (graduated in 1986), Pondok Pesantren Tarbiyatut Tholabah in Paciran, Lamongan (graduated in 1992), and Pondok Pesantren Darut Tauhid al-Hasaniyyah Sendang Senori Tuban, East Java, Indonesia (in 1992). After that, I improved my Arabic Language and literature at LIPIA, Jakarta - an institute belong to Imam Mohammad Ibn Saud Islamic University (IMSIU) (graduated in 1996). I have a linear educational background in the field of Islamic law, when I studied at the Faculty of Sharia at the Islamic University of al-Madinah al-Munawwarah, my final year project was entitled: "Tahqiq al-Shurut al-Umariyyah min Ahkam Ahl al- Zimmah li al-Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jauziyyah" (graduated in 2000). As for the master's level at the Department of Fiqh and Usul al-Fiqh, Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge & Human Sciences, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), my thesis was entitled "Ma'alim al-Taisir fi Fiqh al-Aqalliyyat al-Muslimah ' inda al-Sheikh Yusuf al-Qardhawi" (graduated in 2006). The topic of the relation between Muslims and others in the Muslim countries or the Muslim minorities countries is my field, and this study was emphasized again when I finished my PhD dissertation entitled, "Fiqh al-Ta'ayush bayna al-Muslimin wa Ghayrihim fi Indunisiya: Dirasah Maqasidiyyah" (graduated in 2014). After those studies and researches about the relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims in light of Maqasid al-Shari'ah perspective, I focus my research on Maqasid Shariah and its application in Siyasah Shar'iyah. While studying at the PhD level, I was actively involved in managing at-Tajdid journal, a Refereed Arabic Biannual journal of Islamic thoughts and studies at IIUM, a journal that began publishing in 1997 and can be said to be the first regular journal that uses the Arabic Language in Southeast Asia. At the end of 2015, I taught at the Department of Fiqh and Usul al-Fiqh at IIUM and taught courses on Fiqh and Usul Fiqh, Qawaid and Furuq Fiqhiyyah, Ijtihad and Ifta ', Adillat al-Ahkam, Fiqh Muqaran and also as an editor of at-Tajdid journal. Attended various national and international conferences in several countries, and also published papers relating to Muslim and non-Muslim relations, studies on maqasid and also various topics on Fiqh and Usul al-Fiqh studies, in particular the relation between Muslim and non-Muslims and Maqasid al-Shari’ah Studies.
