Abstract

Since its emergence, the digital era has been influenced every side of human life such as religious practices, intellectual traditions, etc. These phenomena also happen in Moslem societies. This article analyzes the Indonesian Moslems' new tradition that appears in the digital era: pop-tafsir on YouTube Channel. Pop-tafsir means a popular form of Qur’anic commentaries or exegesis produced in the digital era and spreader through social media instead of printed books. The analyses is going to focus on the emergence of Indonesian pop-tafsir on YouTube channels, its contestations and discourses lay behind. The sociological approach will be applied in analyzing when, why and how does pop-tafsir emerge on the Indonesian YouTube channel, and also the contestations run among channels to promote their own ideologies.In using Bourdieu's habitus theory, this article concludes: the Indonesian YouTube pop-tafsir habitus built upon two main doxas are at cross purposes each other (back to Qur’an and Sunnah and Islam mercy for all creation—raḥmatan li al-‘ālamīn). The first doxa leads the exclusive habitus, while the second one to the inclusive. Each habitus based on its own capitals of culture, social, symbolic and economic which are intertwining each other.
