- Javanese coastal and inland Islam is essentially a typical Javanese Islam. It is not Islam that has Arabic traditions purified by the influence of the Wahabiyah movement, but it is also not syncretic Islam as Geertz's perspective influenced by the Islamic great traditions and small traditions. Coastal Islam is Islam that has transcended long dialogue in the span of society's history and transcended serious struggles to produce a characteristic Islam. This Islamic style is called as collaborative Islam, which is the result of joint construction between the agents and the society that produces a distinctive Islamic style, ie, Islam that is in contact with the local culture. Not solely pure Islam but also not solely Javanese. Coastal Islam is a dynamic combination that accepts and interprets Islam with local culture. Coastal Islam is often identified as more purist than inland Islam. seeing that Indonesia, especially in Java, such Islamic variants can be found as a unique da'wah reality, describing the existence of the phenomenon that Islam when in the hands of society is Islam that has experienced humanization in accordance with its ability to interpret Islam. Speaking of inland Islam, the essence is also there are variants that describe that when Islam is in the understanding of society there will also be variants according to the level of understanding of society about Islam.
