About This Book

Muhammadiyah, together with the Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), are seen as the two pillars of moderate Islam in Indonesia. Muhammadiyah is currently often perceived to be the more conservative of the two and to have more affinity with Islamist groups. Muhammadiyah remains a social movement guided by its long-held theology of al-Ma`un (kindness) and with a strong emphasis on social services. It is this doctrine that has prevented Muhammadiyah from dwelling on mythical or abstract issues and neutralized it against Islamism, making its members more realistic in viewing the world. The "pragmatic Islamism" that Muhammadiyah has adopted allows it to handle social dynamics well.
