Saren Jawa: Muslim Community with Balinese Hinduism Tradition  

by on Monday, 29 August 2011No Comment | 566 views

Muslim community in around the world is celebrating Ramadhan. Here, in Bali they are also fasting in the midst of other religions communities. They even adopt Balinese Hinduism habits both in daily life and in special days such as Idul Fitri.

Yes. Story about how Balinese community tolerates each other is never ending to be told. And besides big Muslim communities in Buleleng and in Kepaon- Denpasar, Karangasem also has their own story about Muslim community who lives peacefully with other religion communities and adopt Balinese Hinduism tradition. Saren Jawa is the name of muslim community in this eastern part of Bali.

Wayan, Made, Komang, Ketut are the initial name for Balinese children indicating who is elder than who. Though each person in Saren Jawa has their own Muslim name, in daily basis they get used to be called with their Balinese name.  For example in the case of the head of Saren Jawa Banjar. In his identity card, his name is Zailani but people always call him with Pak Made, because he is the second child in his family. Even their Balinese name is more popular than their real name. “They know better that my name is Komang rather than my real name,” Ismuni, one of Saren Jawa Banjar members, admitted

In the meantime, they speak Balinese fluently. This unique tradition in Saren Jawa Banjar, Budakeling, Bebandem Village has been happening since 14 century, when Saren Jawa Banjar formed. Also, on Idul Fitri they always ‘ngejot’- Balinese habit to send various dishes to the colleague- to other people including Balinese Hinduism community in their Banjar or village.
