Gender Equality In Islam: Discourse Analysis of Text In The Book of "Buya Hamka Berbicara Tentang Perempuan"
The notion of equality of men and women was much discussed by Buya Hamka during his lifetime in a serial writing in Panji Masyarakat magazine in the 1990s. In 2014, publisher Gema Insani Jakarta republished Buya Hamka's thought in his book entitled 'Buya Hamka Berbicara tentang Perempuan’. This is considering the importance of the Muslims in this century about Buya Hamka's idea of gender equality, so that Muslims, especially women, can safeguard aqidah, morals, and thoughts referring to the Qur'an and Hadith, and are proud of their Islam. The specific purpose of this study was to find out the textual discourse on gender equality in Islam contained in the book 'Buya Hamka Berbicara tentang Perempuan’. Furthermore, the benefits of this research are theoretically for the development of knowledge and analysis related to contemporary issues required by Muhammadiyah and stimulates further researchers in Muhammadiyah Higher Education to study and explore more about gender in Islamic view. The study used the van Dijk model discourse analysis method which analyzed the microstructure of a text by observing semantics, syntax, stylism, and rhetorical. Subject in this study is the text of the book 'Buya Hamka Berbicara tentang Perempuan’. The object of research is gender equality in Islam.
