Abstract

The identity of community groups is always present in various forms. Those who belong in the middle-class Muslim community form their piety identity differently from others outside the community. This article states that the middle-class Muslim practices various activities such as studying of Holy Qur'an, sacrificing animals during Eid al-Adha, infaq and sadaqah, as well as the going to hajj and umrah. These activities contain motivational values in creating an identity among Muslims. The Muslim communities at Alam Citra Residence, as a middle-class Muslim community, are 'extraordinary' compared to its surrounding poor community members in terms of religious activities and their lives. Their attributes and goals showed a lot of differences from those who were not middle-class Muslim. The researchers applied qualitative research, including interview, literature review, and field observations. Then, the data were analyzed using a sociology-anthropological approach to explain the data found during the investigation.
