Abstract

The Qur’an, the revelation of Allah which provides meanings and guidances for His entire servants is His means to get communication with them. Thus, although in different model or capacity, every Muslim has been getting interaction with the Qur’an of course. The Qur’an is the heart of Muslims life. It fulfills many of functions in Muslims life. For them, there is no great activity except which God himself engages in. It is evident that activity of committing the Qur’an, reciting, writing, listening and memorizing regarded as acts of great spiritual merit. Some of the Qur’an phrases are recited at great occasions and in the most humble circumstances of daily life. Moreover, it regarded as alive and has quasi human personality. It was always treated with enormous reference. Likewise wood calligraphy carving, for part of Jepara society, it is a visual form of Allah word (the Qur’an) that regarded as sacred thing that also should be treated as well as the Qur’an. But nevertheless, as Herbert Blumer, an American sociologist says “thing will be different object for different people”, hence wood calligraphy carving also will be a different object for different people. They act toward or get interaction with wood calligraphy carving on the basis of the meanings they ascribe to it. For most of industrialists and carvers, wood calligraphy carving is the source of their life. They carve and produce it just for making a living. They don’t care about the meaning of it. The important for them is it is effectual. Whereas calligrapher (sketcher) believes that calligraphy is media to get Allah blessing that should be treated with enormous references, so they always keep their purity in sketching process. But according to devotees who stick wood calligraphy carving on their houses walls, it is symbol of their identities (either their faith or class), symbol or expression of art that make eye and heart quivered enough, and as visual form of the Qur’an that sacred and powered. Averagely, they stick Qur’anic verses, such Al Hijr: 46, Nuh: 28, Al Naml: 40, al Thalaq: 2-3 and al Baqarah: 255 (Ayat Kursi) as media to get healing, blessing and protecting of Allah from the illness or evil eye. Hence, a part from all, sticking wood calligraphy carving is a form of their interaction with the Qur’an.
