How the actual lunge Al Zaytun in the study of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI)? In 2002, a research team from the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) conducted research related to Al Zaytun.

Member of the MUI Fatwa Commission, Aminuddin Jacob, said that MUI had once formed a team to investigate the existence of the NII KW IX movement which was linked to MAZ. From this research studied three things.

“We studied three aspects, namely, the profile of NII KW IX and the teachings in it, the profile of MAZ and the curriculum activities taught, and explored the possibility of a relationship between NII KW IX and MAZ,” said Aminuddin, who was also the secretary of the MUI research team in the study. , in his statement, Sunday (30/4/2023).

From the information compiled by MUIDigital, Friday (28/4/2023), the research above resulted in the following conclusions:

First, NII KW IX is a splinter movement from the NII movement led by Panji Gumilang alias Abdul Salam alias Prawoto.

There are deviations from the teachings of Islamic law in NII KW IX, including congregational sins that can be redeemed with money, the obligation to prioritize NII teachings over prayer, and teachings related to hijrah.

Second, the study conducted on MAZ resulted in no deviations from being taught in the curriculum.

In this sense, there are students who are recruited from NII KW IX or the leaders directly. There are also students who are recruited publicly and openly.

“Regarding this, we have not received empirical evidence, because it is hidden and confidential. We also haven’t found any evidence of irregularities in the curriculum taught at MAZ,” said Aminuddin.

1. Aspects of leadership. There is an indication of a link between the two because MAZ leaders, teachers and employees are involved in the NII KW IX movement. They have served as leaders and members in NII KW IX

2. Fund flow relationship. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant flow of funds from the NII KW IX movement to MAZ which was collected from hijrah funds, allegiance, penance, and other funding sources.

3. Historically, the relationship between NII KW IX and the birth of MAZ cannot be separated and is a part of it
