Medieval centuries remarked new formulations of political philosophy which was different from its Greek predecessors. Although almost impossible to totally detach from ancient Greek political ideas, medieval philosophers had attempted to adapt, renew and reformulate Greek political philosophy so as to fit with their circumstances. Al-Farabi and Thomas Aquinas were among attractive and influential philosophers who undertook this task of the reformulation of political ideas. Among new things inserted into ancient political philosophy by al-Farabi and Aquinas were political ideas of their religious teachings and the needs of their contemporary political situation. Referring to their writing on politics, both al-Farabi and Aquinas seemed to favor monarchy or a single supreme ruler as the best regime. However, a close investigation on their political ideas opened other possibilities of the forms of government when the situation of such ideal regime did not apply.</p> Zaenal Muttaqin Copyright (c) 2023 Zaenal Muttaqin 2023-04-17 2023-04-17 7 1 The Influence of Religious Education on Radical Religious Understanding Among Students of the State Islamic Institute <p>The aim of this research was to investigate the level of religious understanding radicalism among students of the Public Faculty and Religious Faculty, respectively. The initial hypothesis was that the level of religious understanding radicalism of the students in the Public Faculty would be higher than that of the students in the Religious Faculty. The research employed an ex post facto method and used t-test to analyze the data. The study was conducted in 2018 at the State Islamic Institute of Surakarta, an Islamic religious college in Surakarta. The research population consisted of all students from 22 departments in the academic year of 2016, totaling 10,980 people. Samples were drawn from each department, with a quota of 10 students per department, resulting in a total of 220 sample members. The data collection used a questionnaire of religious understanding radicalism, which was tested for validity and reliability. Data analysis included a sample randomness test, data normality test, and variant homogeneity test. The results showed that although the level of religious understanding radicalism was higher among students in the Public Faculty than those in the Religious Faculty, the hypothesis was not statistically proven. The study suggests that religious education cannot be solely correlated with formal education background and that students' interactions with extra campus organizations, both on and off-campus, play a significant role in shaping their religious understanding radicalism. Additionally, the religious education process in the Public Faculty at the State Islamic Institute of Surakarta could make students more moderate in their religious understanding.</p> Purwanto Furqon Edi Wibowo Mifedwil Jandra Arieff Salleh Rosman Mohd Fauzi Abu-Hussin Copyright (c) 2023 Purwanto, Furqon Edi Wibowo, Mifedwil Jandra , Arieff Salleh Rosman, Mohd Fauzi Abu-Hussin 2023-04-26 2023-04-26 7 1 Does Religiosity Responds to Excessive Consumption? Analysis of Indonesia Family Life Survey 5 <p>This paper investigates the relationship between Islamic religiosity and excessive conspicuous luxury consumption (<em>israf</em>) in Indonesia, the largest Islamic society in the world. This paper is the first of research projects that examined the relationship between religiosity and <em>israf</em>in the scale of the country. This study uses a probit model estimation model using STATA 12 software. The data set being used is Indonesia Family Life Survey 5 (IFLS5), which consists of a 5.646 Moslem family sample (&gt;20.000 individual Moslems) representing about 83% of the Indonesian population living in 13 of the 26 provinces in Indonesia. This paper examined the relationship between Islamic religiosity (identity religiosity, intrinsic religiosity, extrinsic religiosity) and excessive conspicuous luxury consumption (<em>israf</em>). The result is no relationship between Islamic religiosity and <em>Israf</em> in Indonesia. Identity, intrinsic and extrinsic religiosity insignificantly corresponds to <em>israf</em>. The findings of the paper can be a suggestion for Islam in teachings about <em>israf</em>, which can be more emphasized in the family by the parents, to be included in the school curriculum, and in prayer meetings by the religious leader in order to make having an Islam religiosity can have a significant negative relationship to <em>israf</em> lifestyle.</p> Cinantya Sriyono Putri Yan Putra Timur Ilmiawan Auwalin Sulistya Copyright (c) 2022 Cinantya Sriyono Putri, Yan Putra Timur, Ilmiawan Auwalin, Sulistya 2023-03-31 2023-03-31 7 1 10.22515/islimus.v7i1.5434 Investigating the Dimensionality of Psychological Contract from a Spiritual Perspective: an Empirical Study of Indonesian Employees <p>Based on the Western value system, research on the psychological contract has received immense attention from human resources management researchers. However, psychological contract from the spiritual perspective has not been much explored. This empirical study attempts to enrich the understanding of the psychological contract phenomenon from a spiritual perspective. This is a research paper to explore the dimensionalities of a spiritual psychological contract with examined both inner (structure) and outer (measurement) models via Partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). A survey of 108 employees in business organizations in Indonesia, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, and Taiwan was drawn for the study using a nonprobability convenience sampling procedure to obtain a more representative sample. The construct validity of the spiritual psychological contract (SPC) via SmartPLS 3.2.7 software led to the major finding; the SPC measurement model in the business organizational context is explained by three components i.e., transactional, relational, and liturgical contract. This is a new insight into psychological contract research and needs further studies to explore it.</p> Tien Suhartini Copyright (c) 2023 Tien Suhartini 2023-03-31 2023-03-31 7 1 10.22515/islimus.v7i1.5407 'Amid: Islamic Integrative Approach as Survey Model <p>Research and development require tools to approach and obtain an overview of the system, these tools include interviews, questionnaires, surveys, observations, and others. QS An-Nahl Verse 43 is a popular verse that is widely used to represent appropriate to ask, this terminology is closely related to what is known as a sample. However, in contrast to the sample, the meaning intended by the verse is beyond the scope of the sample, in this study, it is termed as 'Amid. In market research, such as research on how well educational products are produced by universities, the number of response rates affects the conclusions that are built, so the sampling approach does not correlate well. The research uses 'Amid, as an approach model that is able to increase the response rate and at the same time the best reference in questioning the assessment of higher education products that are the object of research. The study found that the 'Amid' model has more quality data than the commonly used survey approach with a better travel time. The next research is suggested to try the implementation of the 'Amid' model in market research for other products.</p> <p> </p> Marliyah Muhammad Yafiz Budi Dharma Ahmad Muhaisin B.
