Transnational Islamic Ideological Movement In Film Jejak Khilafah di Nusantara


  • Likullil Mahamid Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University, Indonesia


The film Jejak Khilafah di Nusantara (JKDN)’s screening left a general problem about the Caliphate and its relation to the development of Islam in Indonesia (Archipelago). In the film, it is stated that the Caliphate is an institution that houses Muslims around the world and plays an important role in the rapid growth of Islam. However, many still doubt the film's veracity. Some point the finger at the propaganda of one of the transnational Islamic understandings, which later impacted the image of Islam in Indonesia. This study aims to re-dissect the contents of the JKDN film, linking the history of Islamic development with the transnational Islamic ideological movement in Indonesia contained in the film's narrative. The method used is history, which includes the collection of sources, verification, interpretation, writing, a sociolinguistic approach, and studying documents (films). The theory that strengthens this research is the theory of the Islamic fundamentalism movement initiated by Ernest Gellner. This research seeks to discuss the process of Islamization in Indonesia as one of the historical events revealed again through the film. Important findings related to the movement of transnational Islamic ideology are the communication between the Islamic sultanates in Nusantara and the Islamic Caliphate, the spirit of unity that emerged between the two, and their high dedication to upholding Islamic law.
