- The main mission of NU's struggle in the 1926 decision was as a social-religious movement. However, in a long period of time, the dynamism of NU continues to develop along with social, cultural, and political developments to be involved in practical politics. NU has experienced in practical politics. Practical political interests (low politics) indeed almost always appear in the political history of NU time to time, although some of them are natural as a form of missionary political shift in NU's body. This was reflected in 1952 when NU became a political party. After that, NU merged into the United Development Party (PPP) since 1973. However, NU's dynamism in practical politics had obstacles and criticism. When NU plunged into the field of practical politics, there were many criticisms from the NU community itself which said that political elites were considered not to take care of the interests of the people. The culmination of this criticism led to the struggle to restore NU to its khittah, as a socio-religious organization, not practical politics. The purpose of this research is to understand the understanding of NU Muslimat community members regarding the Muslim mission and societies in NU Muslimat. This research was conducted using a qualitative approach. Data collection used observation, interviews, and document. The data analysis was carried out using the interactive analysis model of Miles, Hubermen, Saldana.
