Abstract

The study aims to analyze the interaction of Islamic family law and customary law in Java's Muslim society. The method used a field research method. The approach used in conducting the problem of this research is the anthropology. Java has many cultures, especially in the field of marriage, one of them pepali nikah. It is uncommon for the culture to sometime be mystical and as though contrary to Islamic law and much research stoped in conclusion if there is customary law to be in contradiction with Islamic law than customary law should leave out. Therefore as soon as possible customary law will eliminate from its position. The result of the research shows that there is harmonization of Islamic and customary law. There are some Islamic values in this tradition. Both of them have the same goal of forming a sakinah, mawaddah, and rahmah family though in different ways.
