Abstract

This essay examines the Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) and the legal decisions that it issued after the fall of President Suharto, whose regime played a role in its establishment. In light of MUI’s changing relationship with the state under Suharto’s successors B.J. Habibie and Abdurrahman Wahid, I call for a more nuanced reading of MUI’s decisions. I also discuss the relative weight accorded to MUI decisions—variously called “opinions,” pieces of “advice,” and “fatw§s”—arguing that these “discursive products” reflect a conscious attempt by MUI to break free from the circumstances of its birth and to guide the reformation process in post- Suharto Indonesia.
