Hearing Allah's Call

Chapter Nine reflects further on the meanings of oral preaching in Indonesia’s Islamic public sphere, searching for alternatives to the modernist perspectives explored in earlier chapters. It finds support for the medium in the traditionalist project of the mass organisation known as NU (Nahdlatul Ulama, or the Rising of the Scholars). Through its doctrine as well as its characteristic forms of public communication, the organisation advocates passivity as an acceptable Muslim position.
