About the Faculty of Dirasat Islamiyah


The school's dirasat islamiyah is previously known as the al - azhar special program born as the implementation of the scientific and cultural cooperation agreement signed on September 17, 1999, in Jakarta, which was then revised on March 29, 2002. Although the agreement is signed by the directorate of al-azhar university of Cairo, professor Dr Ahmad omar hasyim and the directors of the islamic university (uin) if hidayatullah Jakarta, Prof. Dr. Azyumardi azra, but the department of religion of ri remains active as a parent organization for the state's higher education.
 The director of the house of representatives DPR said after a meeting with the house of representatives DPR here on Tuesday, the minister said after a meeting with the house of representatives DPR here on Tuesday.

In the first half of nga's postgraduate studies, the al azhar special program was followed by 40 students selected from more than 300 applicants of special programs in the various faculty of uin, ushuluddin, Shari 'ah, adab and wah. Although the program involves important agencies, it is not without success, even with heavy internal and external obstacles and obstacles, some predict that it will be only a few months old and that it will eventually be forced to close. But with the patience and persistence of various parties, including senior professors such as Prof. Dr. Huzaemah t. yanggo, Prof. Dr. Anwar uddin an-nadwi, and others, the program continues to be organized, with only 27 students at the end of the year.

In accordance with the development of the wisdom of higher education, the program status of this agency is deemed irrelevant and difficult to maintain. On that basis, Prof. Dr. Suwito, as an associate academic rector, suggested and at the same time sought to change the program status into the sixth faculty within the environment of uin. In 2001 the effort was marked by the exit of the chancellor, which essentially defined the status change of the al - azhar special program (fdi), with Dr. Masri elmahshar being the first dean. Then a fdi structure was reinforced by its installation, Dr. M. syrozi dimyathi as the dean's representative. According to bank Indonesia the central bank/bi's decision to raise its benchmark interest rate by 25 basis points to 8.25 percent, he said.

Now the number of fdi students is 325 and supported by 20 professors and aided by 14 executive forces. In addition, since 2001, there have been adequate facilities and infrastructure, including language laboratories, the Arabian zone, and so on. Fdi had graduated 17 alumni, where six of them were chosen to continue their graduate studies in Egypt and Sudan.
 It is noteworthy that the fdi's success is growing well and is in great interest, since the faculty originally endeavored to maintain academic quality by using the Egyptian standard of al-azhar university as well as curriculum and the introduction of the school. The new student recruits were selected by using the oral exam 4 maharat of the Arabic '(listening), qira 'ah (reading), tahaduts (speaking), and fahm (understanding). Every year, the fdi is forced to receive only about 50% of all enrolled student candidates, both through the PMDK and the local SPMB. For the 2004/2005 freshman year, fdi decided to participate in the national selection via SPMB, so that prospective students could take the entrance exam throughout Indonesia, without having to come to Jakarta.

Fdi faculty, especially competency subjects adjusted to international qualification standards, minimum strata 3 graduates from domestic and foreign colleges, especially from al-azhar university. The foreign professor recorded his name as ft. guru among others was Dr. Muhammad dasuki, Dr. Fair and Dr. Dr. Shemisuddin an-nadwi.
 The fdi curriculum, as agreed, was adopted from curriculum and silabi that applied to Cairo's al-azhar university. This is because, in addition to its inclusion in the world's oldest islamic colleges, is also the academic standard in many parts of the world, especially in the Middle East and Africa regions. Still, the English aspects depicted in mkdu are well noted.
 The background is established by fdi's selected international standards within the process of learning teaching them, believing that many potential boarding schools, men and mas deserve international islamic studies, without going abroad at large costs.
 Through a study in fdi, it is hoped that aluminum current will become practitioners and researchers capable of expanding islamic studies globally and competitiveness. This noble goal is difficult to quell, without the tenacity, seriousness and active participation of the entire academic fdi, including his students.
