He advocated a style of dress and lifestyle that would symbolically separate the Indonesians from the Dutch. Third, many Tebu Ireng santri were members of the Hizbullah, the Islamic anticolonial forces, and Yusuf Hasyim was a lieutenant. Finally, at a point when all hope was lost, General Sudirman, the commander of the Indonesian forces, asked Hasyim Asyari to declare that the war against the Dutch was jihad. He gave a fatwa doing so and requiring all Muslims within 80 kilometers of the fighting to participate (Arifin 1993:81; Syihab 1994:30).

Chapter 2 The “House” that Change Built Once, a kyai and his senior santri came to pesantren Tebu Ireng to meditate and pray at the grave of its founder, Hasyim Asyari. The kyai was looking for the tasbih (prayer beads) of Hasyim Asyari, which would give him great spiritual powers. After several days of prayer, the kyai led his students home disappointed because he had not found the tasbih. One student asked what the kyai had been looking for and was told, for the first time, that the kyai sought the tasbih of Hasyim Asyari.
