Is it correct to study with Muhammadiyah?


Salam aleykoum wa rahmatullah wa barakatouh. I hope to find you all in good health insha Allah. I want to study religion in some pesantren in Indonesia insha Allah. Though, my place is surrounded by Muhammadiyah affiliated places. Can we take from them? If not, may I know why insha Allah?

Do you have some institution to advice me in order to study Islam in Indonesia? I live in Bengkulu, south Sumatra.

Barakallahou fik and please forgive me if I lack adab.


Alaykum Salam,
You may take from any religious teachers of Ahlus Sunnah wal-Jamaah who accept and practice Tariqah such as Naqshbandi-Khalidiyyah or Qadiriyyah etc., otherwise limit yourself to taking Arabic and Fiqh from them but not Aqidah and not Sulook. Even so you need to be very aware of the warning of the Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace): “A person follows the religion of those with whom they keep company so beware who you take as your close friends.”
