Abstract

Islamic education Salafi / Pondok is the foundation of the construction of human civilization in the past. In the Muslim community in Tanah Melayu, especially in the Johor-Riau area, there are many forms of scholarship inherited from the old generation to the new generation. This includes Salafi's Islamic education which consists of the study of classical books, studies based on the manuscripts of the yellow books or jawi writing texts in the Riau district of Riau. These books will break the various Islamic disciplines such as books of Jurisprudence, Aqidah, Sufism, Shari'a, Muamalat and so on. In this period the process of Islamization of science gave birth to Islamic Malay characters, the body of Islamist movements such as the tarikat and emerging institution of pondok which gave birth to figure and ulama in Johor Riau which then spread in the archipelago and Malaya. This study will focus more on the history of Islamic education of salafi in Johor Riau especially and in Malaya in general.
