The continuity of human culture lies in the inheritance and formation of children’s subjectivity from the earlier age. Therefore, in welcoming the arrival of the children as the future, various rituals carried out as a form of cultural conversation between the past (traditions from ancestors), the present (cultural actors), and the future (children). The oral tradition of the Yabelale lullaby in South Sulawesi reveals this cultural formation. This study aims to uncover the pattern passed by Yabelale lullabies as a form of children’s character building in South Sulawesi. This research is an interpretative qualitative study that tries to understand the cultural tradition using Islamic aesthetic concepts developed by Abu Hamid Al Gazali. Based on his concept, it is found that as a traditional art, Yabelale lullaby aims to provide knowledge aesthetically to build children’s moral virtues. Through the attainment of moral virtues and strong personalities, the children are prepared to wander and expand their intellectual universe as a way to know themselves and pursue knowledge of God. Its powerful reciter who sing lovingly, the content of the song, and the recital time powerfully and aesthetically open the heart of the children to embrace the messages and hopes of the future.
