Raden Ajeng Kartini is one of the Indonesian woman national hero. She is recognized as a woman who stands to the equality of rights between man and woman. Her ideas were known from her letters for her friend in Netherland. At first, Kartini feel jealous with the freedom of Dutch women. They could do everything outside the house freely, to be educated, and to reach they dream. Meanwhile, in Indonesia, she thought that woman was very bridled and can not get or do many things like man. Fortunately, Kartini was not an uneducated woman really. She got some religion teaching from a teacher and learning Al-Qur’an. As a smart and critical woman, Kartini asked many things about her religion to her teacher. Not satisfied with learning by listening only, she asked the teacher about the translation of their holy book, Al-Qur’an. Those days, Al-Qur’an in Indonesia was distributed using Arabic language only, whereas only few Indonesian people can understand Arabic. So, Kartini asked her teacher to translate it into Indonesian language, to ease every Indonesian Muslim to understand their religion. Direct from the original source, not only from what they listened. Her teacher was very touched with Kartini’s dream and started to translate the holy Al-Qur’an. Kartini was very happy and started to explore this holy book, then she was very excited. She got a light and feel free, she realized the greatness of her religion. She found that Islam is a perfect religion that guide everybody in the world to do what they really should to do. Every rule that Kartini found in Al-Qur’an is perfect. This new understanding about Islam changed Kartini’s mind about equality in gender. She now understand about what man must do, and what the woman must do. Principally, man and woman in Islam have the same duty and right, there are no difference. However, in fact, there are some difference between man and woman, physically and mentally. So, Islam give some special rules for each gender in some parts of their life activity, including their special right and duty. Her understanding about equality of man and woman in Islam inspired Kartini to write her popular quote, “From the darkness to the light”. This quote is actually taken from a verse in Al-Qur’an, “God is the Protector of those who believe. He removed them from the darkness (disbelief) to the light (of faith).” (Al-Baqarah: 257). However, Kartini was passed away before all of the Al-Qur’an’s part was completely translated.
