Abstract

Studies on the practices of Muslims in functioning the Qur'an in their daily lives have fewer number compared to studies on tafsir both textually and contextually. Whereas the former studies, referred to as Living Quran, are able to present tafsir of the Qur'an into the real world. Living Quran seeks to explain how Muslims perceive the Qur'an, read it, and treat its particular verses and surahs as pragmatic solution. This study aims to reveal, map, and record the uses of verses or surahs of the Qur'an as a solution for the life of santri at pesantren in Tulungagung, East Java, Indonesia. The method used in this study is in-depth interview. The collected data were analyzed descriptively using emic approach.The research shows how the practice runs naturally in the tradition of santri with the belief that the Qur'an has certain efficacies not merely as a remedy for psychic illness but also as a medicine for physical diseases and other needs.
