Abstract

The implementation of Islamic Shariah is not something new in Indonesia, especially in Aceh which has a long history of the entry of Islam and the application of its Shariah in Aceh. In 2001, when the regional autonomy was rolled out in all regions of Indonesia, Aceh has issued Law no. 18 of 2001 on the Status of Special Autonomy for Aceh Province by declaring the implementation of Shariah in Aceh. Moreover, through this law gave birth to another organic regulation that regulates Islamic Shariah in the operational level in Aceh called qanun. Implementation of qonun is also applied to those who live in the region of Aceh whether it is the majority of Muslims and religious minorities who are non-Islam. In order to achieve the expected results more focused, the authors use qualitative methods with the historical and sociological approach. In order for the sample of the population to be less extensive, the author narrows the area to be studied in the city of Lhokseumawe from enforcement as well as the implementation of the Shariah (qonun) regulation for the Acehnese people of Islamic nuance, and also measures how effective a law is applied to non-Muslims as a minority community in the province of Aceh against the implementation of the Islamic Shariah law.
