Abstract

Habib Abdurrahman as-Segaf is no stranger to the people around Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi (Jabodetabek). The owner of the complete greeting al-Walid al-Habib Abdurrahman bin Ahmad bin Abdul Qodir Assegaf is one of the important scholars who played a major role in the development of Islam in the metropolitan area.  The figure born in 1908 in Cimanggu Bogor is known as a sincere educator. He dedicated his life to teaching his knowledge to the people. In fact, from a young age, he was believed to teach at Madrasah Jami'at al-Khair, the oldest formal Islamic educational institution in Batavia, at that time. The passion to fight to teach knowledge from al-Walid, as he is familiarly called, has crystallized when he was young. At the age of 20, he moved to Bukit Duri, South Jakarta. Armed with religious knowledge that had been obtained during his studies, he established his own educational institution named Tsaqafah Islamiyah.  The institution that focuses on teaching religious science still survives until now in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Jakarta.
