Based on ethnographic studies through data collection using live in, observation, in-depth interviews, Focus Group Discussions and study of the document. This article argue that Conflicts based on Islamic religious understanding in Aceh were generally triggered by heresy allegations against groups that were targeted by the attack, but the attack of the Ahlussunnah Wal jamaah followers to the As- Sunnah group that took place in Sangso village, Samalanga showed a different basis for justification. In fact, roots of the conflict followers of Ahlussunnah Wal Jama’ah and As-Sunnah was triggered by the view of Islamic identity in Aceh. The splinter of the Islamic group of dayah (Ahlussunnah Wal jamaah) in Samalanga considers that the original Islam of Aceh as developed since the 14th century, is the Ahlussunnah Wal jamaah. Then, Muhammadiyah (As-Sunnah Group) is an Islamic understanding of imported from Java whose development in Samalanga is considered to pollute the authenticity Islam of Aceh and threaten the elite authority of Ahlussunnah Wal jamaah in Samalanga community.
