Abstract
This paper examines the development of Indonesian Shia Islam dealing with: 1) The pattern of intellectual transmission initiated by the predecessors and generations of Indonesian Shia Islam; 2) The dissemination strategy of Shia Islam as a minority group among the majority of Sunnah Muslim; and 3) the challenges and opportunities for more positive dialogue between the two (Shia and Sunnah). There are also two transmission models used as a measuring tool in examining the development of Indonesian Shia Islam, namely: "vertical transmission" and "horizontal transmission." Regarding that issue, this paper used a socio-religious approach emphasizing on social interaction. The samples of this study covered three regions as a representation of Indonesian Islam transmissions, such as Java (as the center of Shia Islam transmission), Makassar (as a representation of Shia Islam transmission in eastern Indonesia), and Palembang (as a representation of Shia Islam transmission in Sumatra).
