Abstract
One of the fish farmers' groups in Tasikmalaya, West Java, GiriRaharja has succeeded as the winner of the national competition. This group used collective farming system as an effort in increasing farmers' welfare. This research aimed to describe how the farmers' group has developed a collective farming system culturally close to Islamic values. Primary data were collected by participation observation in the activities of group and community. Some in-depth interview were also done with group administrator, group member, and nonmember as informants. The result showed that collective farming system was developed by combining the farmers land area for fish cultivation using the environmentally friendly technology in an integrated business system. The collective farming system has been designed based on universal values, especially justice and distribution of benefits among the people. This is the similar to sharia financing schema based on Islamic values in business transaction. The farmers did not realize that transaction in the collective farming system is identical with sharia finance schemes, such as Murabaha,Mudaraba, Ijarah, and Rahn. It is recommended to develop a collective farming system based on sharia in community that keeps anti-usury Islamic values
