Elite figures of a government, in carrying out their duty and function, must hold an authority for issuing a policy. It is usually a written rule of a formal decision of the government, which has a binding nature, and regulates the behaviours of all citizens, in order to create a new value in society. As a policy is issued to be implemented in public, an analysis of that policy is needed, so as to know the applicability of that policy in society. One way to analyze a government’s policy is by examining it through the lens of fiqh siyasah (sharia politics). It is a discipline that studies a formation of law, regulations, and policies enacted by elites of the government for the making of a society or the state that is in harmony with the fundamental doctrines and contextual meanings of the sharia law. This paper will do an analysis of fiqh siyasah on a public policy enacted by the Mayor of the city of Bengkulu, which was aimed at creating a religious and happy society. It based its analytical methods on literature and reading materials related to theories of fiqh siyasah, scattered in various relevant media. This paper concludes that the Mayor’s policy is compatible with theories of fiqh siyasah, because this policy is consisted of relevant principles of fiqh siyasah, such as the principle of legality, general principle of good governance, the principle of equality and deliberation.
