Problematika Konsep Kafa'ah Dalam Fiqih
(Kritik dan Reinterpretasi)
AbstractThe concept of kafa'ah (equality) in Islamic marriage aims to avoid the negative impact of inequality between husband and wife in terms of physical, social, wealth and religion. But the aspect of equality in various respects can have a negative impact, namely caste as a system of social stratification that contradicts the teachings of Islam. This study aims to find the problematic factors that arise from the application of the concept of kafa'ah and also to find reconceptualization of kafaah in realizing Islamic marriage that does not create a caste system in society. This study uses a qualitative approach model in the form of library research. The findings of this study, namely the criteria other than religion in the concept of kafaah can lead to social stratification and even discrimination in society. Therefore it is necessary to re-understand the concept of kafaah which is more emphasized on the criteria of religion rather than others.
