THE NETWORK OF HADITH STUDIES IN INDONESIA IN THE 17TH – 19TH CENTURY

This article aims to explain the network of Indonesian Muslim scholar (ulama) regarding the  hadith  dissemination.  However,  this  research  used  a historical  approach  based  on Azra who tells about the welfare of Islamic kingdoms in international trading. It has given the  opportunity  to  the  Muslim  to  make  the  intellectual  trip  in  the  Middle  East.  The Haramayn  becomes  the  center  of  hadith  since  the  beginning  of  the  Islamic  year.  It implicated  in the spread of hadith studies in Indonesia which first appeared in the 17th century. The symbol of this period is Nur Ad-Din ar-Ranieri and Abd ar-Rauf as-Sinkili. Sufism is more popular than hadith study. This condition continued into the 19th century. Some  Indonesian  ulama  Muhammad  ibn  Umar  an-Nawawi  Banten  and  Muhammad Mahfuz Termas gave their contribution to hadith studies, through teaching the hadith in Indonesia and the Middle East. They also wrote the hadith books.
