Abstract

Narrow mindedness in understanding religious doctrine is widely believed that is taught either intentionally or unintentionally through religious sermon and preaching. In Muslim society, such religious sermon and preaching presented normally in Islamic religious of worships including mosques. When a clergy man gives sermon to religious service event participants, it is his autonomy to speak up any ideas about Islam according to his own standpoint. In his situation, the mosque management could not control over the content of the sermon itself. This paper is based on a qualitative research to observe the implementation of non-formal education to mainstreaming moderation understanding of Islam in mosque. The sample here is purposively to attempt and to portray the religious tolerant as well as religious moderation in Baitul Maghfiroh mosque in Kampung Padabenghar, Babakan Pasar, Bogor Tengah, Bogor. The final result shows that efforts to make the mosque as a center for religious moderation through non-formal education are still limited to merely local initiatives that have not been systematically planned. In addition, the notion of religious moderation is still widely practiced merely at discourse level.
