LOCAL WISDOM OF MALAY MOSLEM COMMUNITY IN BENGKULU
This paper raises forms of local wisdom in the Bengkulu Malay community in terms of the religious aspects of Islam. This local wisdom was formed through acculturation, and assimilation between the traditions of Bengkulu Malay society and Islamic values. Some forms of tradition that are still maintained by the people of Bengkulu are: Tabot, Kain Besurek, Syarafal Anam, Sekujang, Dzikir Marapulai, Aqiqah, Bakunob, Aksara Ulu / Kaganga Islamic style, Ndoa Hari Rayo, Nigo Day, Go to Hari, Nyudah, Kaiak Beterang, Pilgrimage of Ramadhan and Rayo Day, Ndoa Masuk Puasa, Temikang Cupik, Embes Apem, Central Date Ceremony and Giving Names, Inviting Seeds, and Kaji Subdistrict. These various local wisdoms in Bengkulu from the perspective of Islamic law are included in the ‘urf category which needs to be addressed critically. On the other hand, this kind of local wisdom is a cultural uniqueness that is also preserved because it has been Islamized through the process of assimilating culture and Islamic values.
