Abstract

Chinese Muslims are a minority among Indonesian Muslims and are categorized as moderate Muslims. This research aims to identify the factors which contribute to moderation in this community. Using qualitative analysis, this research found that the classic Chinese philosophy, Confucianism, plays a big role. The concept of Zhong Yong in Confucianism is used by Chinese Muslims in Indonesia as their life philosophy even though many do not really know what it is. Research informants admit that even though they are Muslims, Confucianism is practiced and is well developed in their everyday lives. This is a concept of balance in life and they practice a moderate life in the Indonesian community in three ways: first, by balancing culture and religion through building mosques that are unique to Indonesia. These mosques, which are called Muhammad Cheng Hoo, use Chinese ornamentation. Second, trying to be innovative in the way they present Islam, so that Islamic teaching will be easily understood. Third, taking the middle ground to overcome any conflicts that may happen. Other aspects that are also important in order to understand Indonesian Chinese Muslims are family tradition and their interactions with Indonesians.
