In July 2002 I attended a series of consultative ifta' sessions, known as Bahsul Masail, held at a general meeting convened by Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), an Islamic organisation that represents traditionalist fiqh in Indonesia.

description: In July 2002 I attended a series of consultative ifta' sessions, known as Bahsul Masail, held at a general meeting convened by Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), an Islamic organisation that represents traditionalist fiqh in Indonesia. Based upon close observation of the sessions, I show how consultation with the lay membership of NU impacted upon four fatwas drafted by the executive. These fatwas discuss NU's guiding principle, its definition of the Ahl al-Sunna wa'l-Jama'a, the call for Shari'a to be adopted by the state, and the permissibility of suicide bombs as a weapon of war. I argue that although the NU membership may apply pressure to discuss an issue or to call for a fatwa and their voices may well alter the phrasing of a fatwa, the resulting declarations are largely shaped by the political concerns of its executive board.
