This article discusses tafsir Al-Iklil Fi Ma'ani Al-Tanzil, written by K.H. Misbah Mustafa with special reference to the social problem about keluarga berencana/KB (Family Planning). Based on the theory of sociology of knowledge Karl Mannheim, the article finds that Kiai Misbah's interpretation has been influenced by coastal culture and tradition of pesantren where the writer grew. Through tafsir al-Iklil, Kiai Misbah refuses the concept of KB based on political as well as theological arguments. Politically, KB is seen as a method of government in reducing the number of Muslim population in Indonesia. Theologically, he anchors his argument on QS. 6: 151 which prohibits us from killing a child. His tafsir is an example of how the Qur'an was used to provide an alternative view over the issue of family planning in modern Indonesia.
