Rewanda Offerings is a traditional ritual of Talunkacang society which is held every third day in Syawal. This ritual contained many offerings and only one kind of offering i.e. fruits offerings are given to the monkey inhabiting in Kreo Cave area. The term “Sesaji” or offering usually leads to the shirik in Islam. But this ritual is not totally incompatible with Islamic belief. So the discussion about the philosophical values within this ritual that are examined and evaluated from Islamic perspective will produce a new understanding of this ritual. The purpose of this study is to know the philosophical values and meanings existent in Rewanda Offerings. From these philosophical values, this study also aims to know the relation between the values and Islamic belief (‘Aqīdah). This study applies qualitative research in which the data is collected through fieldwork, interview, and documentary research. This study also uses descriptive analysis. The result of this study is based on the observation in Rewanda Offerings ritual, after being examined with Islamic belief (‘Aqīdah). So there are found some elements of the ritual which are compatible with Islamic belief on one hand and which are not compatible on the other hand. The compatible elements can be seen through the practice of tahlil and slametan. While those not compatible elements can be seen in the burning incense and giving offerings intended to the spiritual beings in Kreo Cave. The Islamic review is needed to avoid misunderstanding of this ritual.
