Contribution of Bahrum Jamil in Preaching in North Sumatra, Indonesia

Dra Nurdiani MA


Abstract: Muslims of North Sumatra in particular have started to turn away from the real faith, truth is fading and the quality of the faith is dwindling. One of the causes is the lack of the roles of preachers and scholars so that very few can deliver the teachings of Islam to remote rural regions, and generally the preaching delivered by preachers and scholars is concentrated on urban regions. The method used in this study is qualitative method by means of historical approach. Bahrum Jamil highly contributes in developing the teachings of Islam to remote rural regions in North Sumatra. The preaching materials delivered are concerned with matters of faith, worship and morality. Bahrum Jamil also pioneers the establishment of Islamic University of North Sumatra, the oldest university outside Java Island, producing a lot of preachers to convey the teachings of Islam wherever they are. Through religious organizations, namely Al-Washliyah, Bahrum-Jamil also cadres young preachers to be able to convey the teachings of Islam to far-away rural regions in North Sumatra.
