There are some people who use it in the scope of the families such as hypnobirthing, hypnoparenting, etc, and the other one uses it in the field of education such as hypnolearning, hypnoteaching, etc. However, when reviewing the fatwa of Bin Baz, one of the great Islamic Scholars from saudi Arabia there is a prohibition on the use of hypnosis. The main aim of this study is to analyze the contents of Bin Baz’s fatwa relation to the practice of hypnosis in the field of education. The research method that the author use is the study of literature with an analytical approach of documents that is descriptive qualitative. Data is collected through observation and documentation, then analysis for the content. While the thinking framework, which is used, are deductive, inductive, and comparative methods. The main conclusion from the results of this study that the Bin Baz’s fatwa about hypnosis is weak or less because it has fewer arguments can be accounted for. There are a few things that have ambiguous meanings; especially the word hypnosis itself is being converted into "magnetic sleep." Through a study based on the latest science, expected quality of human resources especially in the field of education may continue to increase, as well as should be able to answer the problems of society.</p> 2018-06-28T04:28:41+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Therapeutic Aspects in Shalawatan Tradition (An Ethnographic Study on Shalawatan Communities in Banyumas) 2018-08-18T01:26:22+00:00 Muskinul Fuad <p>This study aims to reveal and identify therapeutic aspects in the tradition of <em>shalawatan</em> in Banyumas area.

The provision in Article 11 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia generally guarantees the said right to a person to practice his religion of choice; however, Muslims or practitioners of Islam are not as free as the non-Muslims in the matter of their conversion or reconversion to another religion. This article focuses on the actions or process for a Muslim’s conversion to other religion and the legal ramifications of such actions. This discussion identifies several actions of apostasy, such as issuing a declaration of conversion <em>via </em>a Deed Poll, requesting a Muslim name to be changed to a non-Muslim’s, and renouncing Islam altogether and reverting to a previously held religion (reconversion). There are legal implications for these said actions, such as fines and detention at <em>Aqidah Rehabilitation Centres</em>, which clearly shows that the freedom to practice religion or conversion to other religions as found in Article 11 of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia applies to non-Muslims only. In cases relating to determination of the status of Islam as a religion, the Shariah Court have been given exclusive jurisdiction to hear those cases, as mentioned in the amendment to Article 121(1A) of the Federal Constitution.</p> 2017-09-29T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Islamic Education Based on Agroforestry in MTs Pakis Gununglurah Cilongok Banyumas 2018-08-18T01:26:11+00:00 Sumiarti Sumiarti <p>The paper aims to describe the implementation of Islamic education in Madrasah Tsawaniyah (MTs PAKIS) located on the edge of the forest of Mount Slamet village of Gunung Lurah Cilongok Banyumas Subdistrict.

Kuntowijoyo, in this case, becomes one of the Indonesian Muslim figures who brings fresh air for the social sciences by integrating Islamic paradigm that is transcendental/divine (prophetic). The working device is expected to be applicable in the future in order to look at the social dynamics of the Muslims; its culture, its history of the social and political movements. Thus, the purpose of this study was to see the importance of the Islamic paradigm in the social sciences and also to assure that the application of the scientific framework (that is called by Kuntowijoyo) Prophetic Social Sciences should be started as soon as possible. Therefore, this study is descriptive-comparative. Kuntowijoyo ideas provide a comparison among the opinions of other social scientists to see the relevance of his thoughts within the dynamics of value-laden social science. This study presents that the social observation of the Muslim society so far is not only always value-laden, but also full of certain messages and also unwittingly spread the used paradigm, it is not only pure interpretation. Thus, the working device of developing social science today does not only need critical examination, but also need to be improved to scrape a variety of Muslim social problems; culture, history, social movements, and political. The prophetic values require provocative motion (<em>da'wah</em>), professionalism (<em>jihad</em>), and strong integrity (<em>amanah</em>).</p> 2017-03-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Reconstructing Sharia Economic Dispute Resolution Based on Indonesian Muslim Society Culture 2018-07-28T01:19:15+00:00 Nita Triana This paper describes the settlement of disputes in the field of Islamic economy based on Indonesian Muslim society culture. The research method used is Library research with normative juridical approach. In business, whether based on conventional or sharia, conflict or dispute sometimes happens and can not be avoided. The settlement of disputes in the Court, takes a long time, the cost is huge and the result is a win-lose, resulting in a sense of unfairness to either party. For that <em>Sulh</em> (peaceful) in resolving the dispute sharia economy becomes the choice of the sharia economic actors if there is a dispute between the parties. Sulh (peace) can be developed with various models, such as negotiation, mediation or arbitration. This dispute resolution model is more acceptable to the society, because philosophically the values of Sulh (peace) already exists intrinsically in the culture of Indonesian society which prioritizes deliberation and harmony in the life of society. 2017-03-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Early Chilhood, Characteristic and Creative-Social Development 2018-07-28T01:19:10+00:00 Subur Subur Every child born, not only has talent and creative potential, but also has social tendency.
