Abstract

Muhammad as a prophet has given a wide range of inspiring life to Muslims through the traditions which he created; then these were recorded by canonical books of the Hadith. It was sport among the traditions. In a Hadith narrated by Ibn Umar, there are three kinds of exercise were ordered by the Prophet in which he said: "Teach your children swimming, archery and horse riding." In Sahih Muslim, the Prophet said, "Practice archery and horseback riding." The third sport performed by the Prophet is attractive to be reviewed, not because of its advantages for the health as claimed scientifically by some people, but due to the existing efforts to revive these Prophet's sports traditions by some Muslim communities in Indonesia. This study aims to answer some questions, what are the factors having a role in motivating some Muslim communities in Indonesia to relive the Prophet's sports tradition? What do they take a look at modern sports? What does the revival look like and is there any relationship between the practices of reviving the Prophet's sports tradition and radicalism? This research focuses on three based boarding school (pesantren)-Islamic schools, two of them are in Surakarta; Isy Karima and Al-Mu'min and one is in Semarang; Robby Radliya. The schools are private Islamic schools which require every student to join in extra-curricular activities, i.e., the Prophet's sports tradition and do not provide for other sports. By interviewing school principals and observing the objects qualitatively as well as approaching the study by Living Hadith theory, this research found that; a. Theological motif and health pseudo-orientation are the main factors contributing to succeed the effort of "follow the Prophet" in reviving the Prophet's sports tradition; 2. The prophetic sports are taught and implemented through the educational process; and 3. There is a relative relationship between those Indonesian Muslim communities who revive the Prophet's sports tradition and Islamism which tend to be radical.
