International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences
Al-Sirat al-Mustaqim is very prevalent among the people of the Malay Archipelago. This is proven by the existence of handwritten manuscripts of this book in large numbers. It indicates that copies of the book consistently copied from time to time on the needs of the community to learn about worship or for a mere guidelines in the practices of worship. The phenomenon of copying the book repeatedly has caused differences, changes and even deviations from the original manuscript, whether the
... occurred intentionally or not. This article aims to explain the process of tahqiq/philology of the manuscript of the book al-Sirat al-Mustaqim (Kitab al-Zakah to Kitab al-At'imah) written by Shaykh Nur al-Din al-Raniri. To achieve this objective, the method of tahqiq/philology is used to restructure al-Sirat al-Mustaqim (Kitab al-Zakah to Kitab al-At'imah) by using three manuscripts and two printed manuscripts. The study of tahqiq/philology is a form of research that is needed to help restructure a work of past scholars so that it can be referred by future generations. All types of research, whether in the form of literature or field, must be carried out with caution. If the tahqiq study of a manuscript is not implemented properly, the disappointment is not only felt by the researcher, but also by the entire scientific community who acknowledged the true value of the contribution of a manuscript to the world of knowledge.
