Abstract

Babad Praya recounts the story of the Sasak tribal leaders’ rebellion located in Praya, the Island of Lombok against the Balinese ruler, who was Anak Agung Ngurah Aji, the descendants of Karang Asem Bali. It was caused primarily by a problem leading the people into the state of depression in many respects, especially overloaded tax burden. In Lombok, the cultural climate was more oriented to religio-magical circumstances, like their belief in  amulets which can bring them greatness and invincible. The belief in magical powers was a strong culture mostly adopted by rural society. In the case of insurrection embodied in the Babad Praya, the consciousness of Praya's religious states emerged in the form of life survival. The soul in the view of Islam was one among the five things  deserved to be guaranteed and must be protected in addition to religion, property, reason, and self-esteem
