Abstract

Religiosity is spiritual expressions related to the system of beliefs, values, and laws. A Muslim woman who is religious in her daily activities has a religious attitude. Her position in the perspective of Islamic education faces a challenge, especially in the current digital era. This paper is an attempt to answer the questions of religious characteristics, religious behaviors, and dimensions among the Indonesian Muslim woman. The data was obtained from the results of in-depth interviews from the key informants from five zones of the archipelago in Indonesia and was compared to document studies. The results showed that first, the religious characteristics of Indonesian Muslim women having a career in the digital era are rich in faith, diligent worship, and noble characters. Second, their behaviors and religious dimensions are related to the aspects of beliefs, worships or practice, consequences, and religious knowledge. This study concluded that religiosity is an implication of the depth and maturity of Muslim women. Muslim women might become religious in their manifested career life formed through a unified and integrated dimension. The digital age is a tool to facilitate belief as a guideline in a career.
