Abstract

Social media in various platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube have become an important part of society in accessing information, communicating with others, as well as learning media. This research presents a study of the phenomenon of Ngaji Online which is popularly carried out by Indonesian Muslim communities by utilizing social media features that grow in accordance with the development of digital communication technology. In the simple definition, Ngaji Online can be understood as an online learning activity of Islamic teachings through reading classical Islamic books by an Islamic Scholar (Ulama) and followed by an audience without a facial-spatial interface. Furthermore, the results of this research are the classical Islamic books that were studied. Among them: Kitab Ihya Ulum al-Din by Abū Ḥāmed Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad al-Ghazālī, al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah or Tarikh Ibnu Katsir by Ismail bin Umar Al-Quraisyi bin Katsir Al-Bashri Ad-Dimasyqi or Ibnu Katsir, Adab ad-Dunya wa ad-Din by Abu al-Hasan Ali Ibn Muhammad Ibn Habib al-Bashri al-Mawardi, Syarah Al-Waroqot Fi Ushulil Fiqhi by Syaikh Imam Jalaluddin Muhammad bin Ahmad al-Mahalli as-Syafi’I, Muqaddimah at-Tashawuf wa Haqiqatuh wa Natijatuh, Dzikr al-Maqomat by Syekh Abdul Qadir Al-Jailani Al-Hasani Al-Husaini, Syarh al-Hikam by Ibn Athoillah al-Sakandary, Adab al-Muridin by Abu al-Najib al-Suhrawardi and others.
