Abstract

The purpose of this study is to reveal the motivation for writing Nabi Bersyukur text in the Nusantara. It is because the popularity of the story text recorded in many copies of the text shows the readers' response to the text of the Nabi Bersyukur. This short article will examine the motivation of writing and welcoming readers of the Nabi Bercukur text in the Malay and Javanese texts. From the textological study of the Nabi Bersyukur stories found in Malay and Javanese texts as well as the motivation for writing and or copying the text, it can be concluded that Nabi Bersyukur became popular in the Nusantara because it was confirmed by the word of God contained in the Qur'an. Although the verse is actually related to the order of tahalul for the Hajj and Umrah, since it is quoted in the text of the story both in Malay and Javanese texts, it adds to the readers' confidence in the text Nabi Bercukur. There are different motivations in copying in both traditions. In the Malay text tradition, Nabi Bercukur is copied in accordance with the contents of the text which promises positive and threatening effects along with negative effects related to the story of the text and the manuscript that contains it. However, in the Javanese texts, the motivation for writing and copying the text is strengthened by the text of the prayer written at the end of the text, which is the prayer offered to increase the faith in Allah and the Messenger of Allah.
