Abstract

Kutika is a heritage of Buginese knowledge since the beginning of their civilization. In general, kutika is defined as a collection of good and bad time records for carried out activity. The method of the Kutika has been integrated with Islamic science which was followed by the influence of several Sufi Order that developed at that time. This paper describes the contents of the manuscript entitled Kutika Ugi 'Sakke Rupa (KUSR) which provides information regarding the method of calculating the time of Buginese which is adapted from the books of Middle Eastern Sufism. This article analyzes the influence between the Sufi Order and Kutika's method, particularly in the 19th century. Therefore, a philological approach is used to textual analysis and historical methods to understand the background of the influence of Islam on KUSR manuscripts. That is an important thing to do in this study. This study aims to reveal the form of Islamic influence contained in the KUSR text and the development of Islam in South Sulawesi. Also, this research can introduce the treasures of calculation manuscripts owned by the Buginese.
