    Abstract

    This article investigates the role of Majelis Tafsir Al-Qur’an (MTA), a dakwah movement operating aminly in Central Java. MTA is known as the Muslim purist
    movement whose mission focuses on the purification of Islam by utilizing the slogan back to the Qur’an and Sunnah. Using the social movement theory, the author analyzes the extent to which MTA uses cultural dakwah or symbolic-cultural mobilization as its dakwah strategy in order to produce counter-interpretation towards the established and hegemonic interpretation of the Javanese culture. Cultural dakwah can mean mobilization process of Javanese symbols by attaching new meaning and interpretation to those symbols. The author further argues that even though the MTA’s dakwah movement
    is mainly characterized by confrontative attitudes, the MATA has also shown its
    accomodative character by introducing new new understanding and meaning of
    the existing cultural symbols.
