Abstract

Recently, the phenomenon of the hijrah movement has emerged in various urban circles, especially Indonesian celebrities, who have been in the spotlight in the media. The trend of hijrah among Indonesian Muslims can be analyzed through several approaches, including one of which is the psychological approach to religion. Through this approach, the question arises, how does the psychology of religion see human relationships and religious behavior? Then what are the motives and orientations of the celebrity’s hijrah given the psychological theories of religion? The current trend of hijrah is a phenomenon of the transformation of the meaning of hijrah itself. At first, the hijrah was a history of the movement of the Prophet and his companions from Mecca to Medina due to discrimination and oppression by the Quraish. This history is then interpreted as religious attitudes and behaviors whose principles are self-change to be more positive and better than before. In this article, the psychology of religion serves to describe matters relating to the behavior of religious followers. In this context, the psychology of religion sees the hijrah as a religious expression that tends to fall into the experiential dimension of a person who experiences a spectacular moment that touches his heart due to the presence of an extraordinary figure, namely the one called God.
