By Didi Suherdi, Dudung Rahmat Hidayat, Maman Abdurrahman

This paper concerns the results of a study on the role of Majelis taklims and Arabic literacy in sustaining lifelong education in Indonesia. The study is intended to explore how Majelis taklims and Arabic literacy sustain lifelong learning among Indonesian Muslims in terms of the age groups, topics discussed, time spent, methods, and benefits. To get the data required, questionnaires were distributed to 750 Majelis taklim members in several cities in West Java, and 461 of them were returned and analyzed. The analysis found that although they vary in many respects, yet they share a strong commonality in sustaining their attendance in Majelis taklim. Based on the findings, some suggestions are presented at the end of the paper.
