This study concerns with an Islamic musical tradition, the selawatan, practiced in almost all traditional Muslim areas of the DIY Province. By utilising ethnomusicological approach, data collected through field research in some mosques, slamic boarding schools, and people in their surounding, within Yogyakarta city and three districts of the province: Sleman, Bantul, and Gunung Kidul. Music as well as Islamic rulings on it, that currently seems to be addressed to music in the Western world, has been a controversial issue within Muslim societies since the early day of Islam. Through discussion on the selawatan as a kind of musical work that was considered a ?non-music? of the Islamic vocal arts by some early relgious scholars, this study tries to uncover the relationship between the selawatan and some Muslim?s believe on the prohibition of music as an ongoing reality of the Islamic law interpretation phenomenon. Problems discussion of this study involving three steps: (1) textually uncovers musicological characteristic of the selawatan to obtain evidences that it is a kind of Islamic religious music, (2) con-textually observes its social as well as cultural functions to understand it from ethnomusicological perspectives that music is a social process, and (3) conceptually uncover a speculative relationship between the selawatan and Islamic religious law to understand the reason why the traditional Muslim practice the selawatan musically.
