: Shariah in the Era of Regional Autonomy in Indonesia. Developments in Islamic Law in Indonesia have taken place since Islamic kingdoms were established in Nusantara before the arrival of the Dutch colonisation period, which dominated Nusantara for the next 350 years. The imposition of Islamic law on its own has moved through five phases, going through various opportune periods. But at the same time it faced a challenge from the colonial side, whose goal was to “divide and conquer” to maintain oppression like the strategy of Snouck Hurgronje. The Dutch created the theory of Receptie as an effort to sterilize Islamic law, which Hazairin then called “Satanic law”. The course of Islamic law during the phase just before independence and afterwards still exists, even though it must be admitted it is Adat and Dutch law that guides Indonesia. But as evidence of the existence of Islamic law, there is the enactment of the 1974 Marriage Act, which serves as guidance for followers of Islam today.
