Abstract

Morality can be manifested as the significant aspect in literature. It concerns to the behavior of human beings, which ought to or not to be acted. It is also related to religion as in the privilege on Islam—the Holy Qur’an is fundamentally used as the source of Islamic law that influences their ideology and morality. On that account, Minaret has been chosen to be scrutinized which considered as an outstanding novel in describing Islam also West culture. Due to this, the researcher then proposed two problems: 1) How to classify the statements of praise and blame as the portrayal of Holy Qur’an’s moral values in Minaret by Leila Aboulela? 2) How is the ideology of Leila Aboulela represented through praise and blame as the portrayal of Holy Qur’an’s moral values? In order to make an arguable and reasonable elaboration, the theory of morality of literary criticism by Ibn Rushd used to construct the theoretical point to solve the problem. The researcher used qualitative research and sustained by qualitative approach to make a subjective assessment of attitudes and opinions so that found the conclusion of the analysis. The result of this research showed that the novel absolutely has the both of classifications and represented the ideology of the writer. There are twenty two statements that classified as praise that referred to the act of God-conscious, optimism, forbearance, and obedience—which is known as virtue. The praise behaviors assist the character to be a better Muslim and confident to face the fate. Whereas the data analysis of the classification of blame found thirteen data, which has one for each data such as humiliating social rank/degree, denying the guidance of God, being selfish, pessimistic, and free-sex (fornication and adultery) are found amount to two data—those are included to vice.The blaming behavior is identified as a kind of disobedient Muslims. Furthermore, the researcher found that Aboulela is a Muslim writer who used Islamic element (shari’a law) that Islam becomes her ideology and identity as possessed values, a sense of purpose and rootedness. It is how Aboulela represented her ideology to Minaret. Thus, it can be concluded that the novel is legibly identified and classified as a virtue- novel due to the result of dominant classifications (praise classifications) which also showed the ideology of the author.
