Abstract

The issue of halal is an important requirement for a Muslim, including tourism. In Indonesia, there has been a discourse on halal tourism recently, because of the needs of the Muslim community who are known as the majority of the population in Indonesia. Therefore, this study tries to look at the perspectives of Indonesian Moslem scholars regarding this issue. This research is a descriptive-qualitative field research. The research method uses in-depth interviews to see their views on the issue. From the results of the research, it was found that 55.6% of the scholars agreed with the regulation of halal tourism, because this would improve the economy of the people (55.6%) and was the guidance of Islamic law (55.6%). When asked about matters related to halal tourism, the scholars revealed 3 things, namely tourist destinations, culinary spots, and lodging (hotels). Regarding the Borobudur temple, the scholars disagree (44.4%) on making it as a halal tourist destination, because the place does not belong to Muslims, but is a legacy of Buddhist civilization.
