Islam period in Indonesia summary

Islam period in Indonesia - Islam was revealed to Prophet Muhammad SAW amid the period of darkness experienced by Arabic people. The Prophet passed on Allah's teachings to people in Mecca, Madinah and the surrounding areas. The propagation of Islam was continued by the close friends of Muhammad, the 'walis' ulamas, and important Muslim figures from place to place as for as Europe, Africa, India, China, and Indonesia.

Islam period in Indonesia - The arrival and development of Islam and its culture in Indonesia was the work of Muslim merchants, Islam teachers, Islamic philosophers from both foreign countries and Indonesia itself. Islam was spread to Indonesian people in peaceful ways, for example by means of trade, Islamic philosophical analyses, educatiopn, and Islamic schools.

Islam period in Indonesia - Due to the role of ulamas in spreading Islam, Java, which had been the place where HIndu-Buddhist kingdoms were founded, turned into a center of Islam propagation in Nusantara.

The great ulamas of Java who played important roles in the spread of Islam were called "Walisanga" or the nine 'walis' or ulamas though actually the number of ulamas who propagated Islam in Jawa was more than nine.

The coming and development of Islam in Indonesia occurred peacefully, Muslim tradesmen from West Asia, South Asia, even China visited different places in Nusantara to sell and buy commodities.

The peaceful arrival of the merchants was welcomed warmly by Indonesian people who were still under the influence of Hinduism-Buddhism at the time.

Through trade relations, Indonesian people gradually professed Islam either voluntarily or because they saw that their  kings or leaders had also converted to Islam. The authorities participation in spreading Islam was a political way of spreading Islam to common people.

The fast spread of Islam in Indonesia was because Islam did not recognize the caste system, Silam teachings were simple and easy to understand, the religious ceremonies were simple,  and the requirement to convert to Islam was also very simple, just by pronouncing the shahadah.

The spread of Islam in Nusantara happened gradually and continuously in various ways.
