Since the “wujudiyah controversy” occurred in Aceh, the ulamas have interpreted very carefully the poetic expressions of the Sufis who often use a dense and symbolic language of poetry. In fact, the mental atmosphere created by the controversy led the ulama to prefer writing Sufism doctrine or teachings “more carefully”. They prefer writing literary genre of books to writing poetry. However, there are also some writers inserting this doctrine into the genre of poetry, as can be found in the Malay text entitled Syair Nasihat. In other words, SN is a representation of wujudiyah poetry that is “disguised or disguised” so as not to become a victim of extermination like previous Sufism works. The research methods used were philology and text studying methods. The results of study are the communication strategies of the Sufi sect of the wujudiyah sect in spreading their teachings amidst the repressive actions of the authorities. The media used with symbolic communication are embedded in poetic expressions in SN. Communicators can also understand and understand well these symbolic messages, namely still affirming monotheism and focusing on efforts to cleanse the soul and unnecessarily responding to all forms of repressive actions carried out by the ruling regime. This is intended so that the meaning contained in Islamic teachings as a blessing for the universe can truly pervade and be applied to everyday life while at the same time be caring for Indonesia’s diversity.
