UNAIR NEWS – Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) has made another brilliant achievement in the national arena. This time, two students from Association of Sharia Economics Studies (AcSES) FEB UNAIR managed to make two achievements as 2nd Place of the National Islamic Law Festival (ILF) which was held by UKMKI Periodic Islamic Studies Faculty of Law, Universitas Jember. The two students are Devina Audrey Subagya and Anggun Adilah Maharani.
Devina Audrey Subagya said that the ILF Competition was themed “Islamic Law in Indonesian Legal System”. According to her, in formulating the essay they chose the sub-theme of Role of the Islamic Millennial Generation in the Development of Islamic Law in Indonesia.
“The reason we chose this sub-theme is because technology is currently developing so rapidly and it is fitting that as a millennial generation we make the best use of the technology,” she explained.
Audrey, said that their motivation for achievement is the desire to be able to make their parents happy and proud. They want to try to be a better and more useful human being.
“Furthermore, we also want to gain new experience and to contribute in making AcSES FEB UNAIR and our alma mater proud,” she added.
The 2019 Development Economics student shared that their experience of collaborating when they were united into a debate team for the AcSES activity. They continued to communicate and finally found a poster for the ILF National Essay Contest.
Anggun Adilah Maharani then explained that the essays they wrote related to the importance of Islamic economics law in regulating muamalat (human relations) in everyday life. Muamalat must be based on a great source that is guided by the Al-Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet. In this essay, they formulated the idea of using Youtube as a medium for delivering Islamic economic law in Indonesia through video podcasts.
“The urgency in disseminating Islamic economic law departs from Indonesia’s population of 87 percent which is dominated by Muslims, making Indonesia a role model for other countries in implementing Islamic economic law,” she explained.
Anggun hoped that with this essay, each individual can realize the importance of implementing Islamic economic law in Indonesia. Indonesia has guaranteed the practice of Islamic economics under the law so it does not violate the rules of law in Indonesia.
“All forms of cheating, fraud, injustice, obscurity, prohibition, usury” and so on must be eliminated in the Indonesian economy, so welfare can be felt by all groups without exception, ” she concluded. (*)
