The guidelines for Indonesia-Arabic transliteration are as follows:





































































To sound a long vowel (madd), author should write a horizontal mark (macron) above the letter ai, and u. The double vowel sound (diftong) is marked by marging of the vowel (harakat) and letter to be “aw” and “ay”, such like maw‘iah, laylahShaddah or double sound is transliterated by writing twice of the letter, like kaffah, ayyibAlif-lam (lam ta‘rif) is transliterated as its origins, like al-manhaj and al-salam. The word which contains ta’ marbuah has two signs: first, if the word placed as ifah (modifier) or muaf ilayh, it is transliterated as “ah”, like al-akhlaq al-karimahyawm al-qiyamah; second, if the function of the word is muaf, it should be transliterated as at, like kalimat allah.

3. Every submitted paper is independently reviewed by at least one peer-reviewer. The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendation. If single or more reviewers consider a manuscript unsuitable for publication in this journal, a statement explaining the basis for the decision will be sent to the authors within three months of the submission date.

Revision of Manuscripts

Tables and Figures

Tables are sequentially numbered with the table title and number above the table. Tables should be centered in the column or on the page. Tables should be followed by a line space (12 pt). Elements of a table should be single-spaced. However, double spacing can be used to show groupings of data or to separate parts within the table. Table headings should be in 10 pt. Tables are referred in the text by the table number, e.g., Table 1. Do not show the vertical line in the table. There is only horizontal line should be shown in the table. Figures should, preferably, be included in the electronic version of the manuscript in an appropiate format as follows; JPG, PNG.

Title; Authors Name; Authors Affiliation; The E-mail Address; Abstract; Keywords; Introduction; Discussion; Conclusion; Acknowledgments; and References.

Paper Title

The title should reflect a specific focus of study based on the main issue of the article so that the author can get a general statement and sub-title specifically confining the scope of study. In addition, the title should be precise.

The title should be in 12 pt capital bold of Calibri and be centered. The title should have 0 pts space above and 12 pts below.

Authors Name and Affiliations

Write Author(s) names without a title and professional positions such as Prof, Dr, etc. Do not abbreviate your last/family name. Always give your full name. Write clear affiliation of all Authors.

Abstract and Keywords

An abstract looks like an advertisement of the article. The reader will continue reading all the article if he is interested in its abstract. Thus, the abstract should tell the prospective reader what the writer did and highlight the key findings. Avoid using uncommon abbreviations. The abstract must be accurate, brief, clear, precise, honest and specific. Use words which reflect the precise meaning. Please consider word limitations (150-250 words) with single spacing, one paragraph and font of Calibri 10 pt 

Keywords are the labels of your article and are helpful for the indexing and searching. Therefore the keywords should represent the content and highlight of the article. Use the words which only focus on your article. Each word/phrase in keyword should be separated by a comma (,) and use font of Calibri10pt. 


In Introduction, authors should state the objectives of the work at the end of introduction section. Before the objective, authors should provide an adequate background, and short literature survey in order to record the existing solutions, to show the differences from previous researches, to show the main limitation of the previous researches, to show what you want to achieve or solve the limitation, to show the novelties of the paper, and to show theoretical construct (if needed) of the research. At the end, if the articles are results of a research, authors should state the methods used.


Discussions should explore the meaning of the article. The discussion is the most important part of your article. Here you get a chance to sell your data. Discussions could begin with a brief summary of the scientific findings from previous researcher’s authors should explore things that relate to the objectives of the work and give a scientific interpretation and reasons for each of the results or findings presented.


The conclusion should answer the research objectives clearly. Tells how your work will find a theory of knowledge. Without a clear conclusion, reviewers and readers will find it difficult to assess the benefits of your work. Do not restate the abstract, or just list from analysis.


Recognize those who helped in the research, especially funding supporter of your research. Include individuals who have assisted you in your study: Advisors, Financial supporters, or may another supporter, i.e. Proofreaders, Typists, and Suppliers, who may have given materials.
