4 Islam: The Only Alternative Basically, the core of Islamic teachings developed by the Islamic resurgence movement is similar to other Islamic groups. Their teachings are based on similar sources, ie. Quran and Sunnah (tradition of the Prophet). The differences are tied to the way they approach Islam. These differences result in various religious views, such as reformist, modernist, traditionalist, and fundamentalist (Aziz 1989:236). According to one informant, Muslims' view of Islam was deeply influenced by Snouck Hurgronje, who tried to restrict Islam to a ‘the mosque religion’ (agama mesjid) and deny its social and political life (cf.

In the middle of 1972, because of student enthusiasm for his teaching, he proposed a special Islamic course, organised during the semester holidays. 21 The participants were limited to 40 students, and they had to pass an interview. Through this interview Imaduddin tried to select students who were not only clever but also had leadership talent. It was expected that after the course they would become the pioneers of the dakwah movement on university campuses. The course ended with tahajud (anoptional midnight prayer) and bai'ah (oath)22 together before dawn (subuh).

Before 1957, when Sukarno threw the Dutch out, almost all lecturers and professors in the institute were Dutch, and most of the lectures were presented in English. On his first Friday, Imaduddin was shocked by the fact that some classes took place during prayer time. Since he was brought up in a strict Muslim family, absence from Friday prayer in the mosque was quite a mental shock for Imaduddin.
