Abstract

In pesantren or Islamic boarding school, the kyai is very sacred because he is considered having the practice of Hizb believed to be able to bring barakah (blessing) by the majority of santri (students). Barokah (grace), Sawada' (humility), and muru'ah (honor) are the tradition of exoteric teachings in Islamic boarding school in which if the students violate it; it will give them negative impact. i.e., they will get tola (accursed) and bhâsto (karma). The phenomenon of obedience of sam'an wată'atan (obedience and loyal) model by expecting barokah to earn the good fortune of the students’ lives both in the world and the hereafter is part of the uniqueness in enhancing the spirituality of santri (students) in Islamic boarding school. All students have a belief in the existence of barakah, karma of kiai as the source of all power that demands them (students) to be submissive, the kiai is believed to be a central figure who does not only have the knowledge of religion (wisdom) but also have supernatural powers which is in Sufism term called as kasyf (unveiling) or 'Irfan.
