Abstract

This study aims to determine the impact of the traditional practice of sesan on the indigenous people of Lampung Pepadun Negara Aji Baru Lampung, which is intended to inculcate social values in sharia or Islamic law. A qualitative research design was used to guide the research. The main data sources came from interviews conducted with Penyimbang Adat (Penyimbang custom), religious leaders, and the indigenous people of Lampung Pepadun Bumi Aji. The research findings reveal that the traditional practice of sesan is a form of local wisdom of the indigenous people of Lampung Pepadun, which must be implemented in the marriage contract. Social values in sharia provide an understanding of the position of sesan property in marriage seen from the wisdom and benefits it obtains. Sesan treasure aims to glorify a wife like a queen in a household who needs various household facilities. This is intended to reduce the fear of getting married because they do not have the facilities for their household needs. Sesan property is not allowed if in practice it conflicts with social values in the Lampung Pepadun custom which places the male party as an object imposed by self-interest, not based on mutual help. The novelty of this study states that the theoretical concepts used have succeeded in finding the understanding gaps that occur in the indigenous people of Lampung Pepadun. The findings also reveal that the inculcation of social values is through mutual cooperation between relatives or because of the services provided by relatives in customary community marriages. It should be understood that the sesan custom in marriage is intended to be the basic capital in fostering a household. The traditional practice of sesan which raises property issues in indigenous peoples is expected to contribute to the cultivation of Islamic law and social values and local wisdom and become a source of knowledge as a form of self-actualization and alternative moral education.
