Abstract

Congregational prayers is an obligation for male Muslims. Carrying out the prophet's orders and reviving his teachings is called living hadith. This research focuses on revealing the intention of congregational prayer for congregation at The Great Mosque of Central Java (MAJT), in living hadith perspective. MAJT as a place of worship, is also used as a religious tourism object. The dual function of MAJT is interesting to study its existence. This research is qualitative with a phenomenological approach. The research results are: first, the implementation of congregational prayers at MAJT is in accordance with hadith of Prophet Muhammad SAW. Second, the congregational prayers intention at MAJT is based on a varied understanding, without the intention of carrying out living hadith, even among the congregation performed as a complement to their religious tourism intentions.
