Abstract

Islamic activism or Islamism although they use freedom provided by democracy, actually rejects the principles of democracy and human rights which they see as contrary to the sharia and the absolute sovereignty of God. In the past thirteen years there has been a tendency for rising aspirations for Indonesia to be regulated by sharia law. The purpose of this research is to look for the meaning of Islam, sharia and democracy for Muslims, the theological foundations for Muslim to support constitutional democracy, and the challenges faced by Indonesia to transform the values of Islam as of well as the values democracy. The author argues that the consolidation of democracy in Indonesia is possible only if Muslims able to synergize between sharia and democracy. There are at least three challenges that must be faced by Indonesia; from authoritarianism perspective, from political and economic institution and from the morality of communication in democratic state.
