As it happens on various indigenous communities or Komunitas Adat Terpencil (KAT) in Indonesia, Orang Rimba in Jambi converted to religion over the past few decades, especially into Islam as the religion of Malay majority people in Jambi. During the conversion, whether Orang Rimba knows well the Quran as authoritative sources of Islamic doctrine? Explanative qualitative research in Dusun Air Hangat and Dusun Nebang Parah indicates that the older generation of Orang Rimba only knew about the Quran symbolically as a sacred scripture of Islam. In the younger generation, the knowledge of the Quran is growing better by having lessons in reading the Quran and Islamic studies. However, this activity is still inadequate in both quantity and quality and encounters many obstacles so that it requires the support of local government institutions, especially the Ministry of Religious Affairs of Indonesia.
