Meretas Involusi Kajian Hukum Islam di Indonesia: Pengalaman Fakultas Syariah dan Hukum UIN Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta


The study of Islamic law requires a shifting paradigm from text to context and demands an inter-disciplinary approach involving� various� disciplines� in� social� sciences.� A� text-based legal-normative� approach� is� no� longer� adequate� to� ensure� the relevance of the study of Islamic law with the current changes as a� result� of� modernization� and� globalization.� Perspectives� of social sciences provides not only the lens to see Islamic law as a fact� social,� but� also� offers� the� analitical� frameworks� to� explain how� Islamic� law� engages� with� the� context� and� receives� new meanings� and� interpretations� in� its� complex� interaction� with other forms of social practices.� In� tandem� with� growing awareness� among� Muslim� intellectuals� of� the� importance� of actualizing Islamic law with the spirit of changes, the studies and researches� at� the� Faculty� of� Sharia� and� Law� at� Sunan� Kalijaga State Islamic University of Yogyakarta have thrived by utilizing and integrating social sciences into their paradigm, method and analytical� construct.� Within� this� context� the� so-called� "mazhab Yogya?� came� into� being.� This� new� trend� of� thought� pays� a special attention to the effort of reactualizing� fiqh� as knowledge about� the� basic� principles� used� as� a� reference� in� formulating Islamic law in accordance with local context.
