Abstract

There are a lot of literary works out there that place the East as an object for Western perspective to judge arbitrarily. Unlike others, Amina Bint Al-Huda’s short story titled "Virtue Prevails" is different. This short story places the West as an object for Eastern perspective to explore which later is represented by two conflicting figures, namely Sumayah and Fitnah. With the theory of Occidentalism by Hassan Hanafi, the author's criticism of the Western world has more essential result of study through all the symbols which the story contains. Therefore, Occidentalism by Hassan Hanafi is a good theory to correct the mistaken myths between the West and the East and each perspectives. The purpose of this study is to examine the defensive nature of the Eastern culture against the Western culture which has offensive nature. Ironically, the offensive nature of the Western actually backfire the image of the Western itself. The result of this study reveals that the defensive nature of the Eastern culture and the offensive nature of the Western culture in the “Virtue Prevails” short story are both motivated by the aspect of religion which is a part of the construction of the ideologies from both cultures. This is because Sumayah’s figure as a pious Muslim represents the Islamic puritanism while Fitnah’s figure as a westernized Muslim represents liberal Islam.
