Over the past decade, Indonesia has witnessed the rise of young Arab preachers along with their sermon groups and media in urban areas. Their sermon groups are highly mobile in urban public spaces and have attracted thousands of followers predominantly from Muslim youth. Many of the preachers claim descent from the Prophet and are collectively known as habaib. They fervently promote traditional Islam to the public. Scholars debate the reasons for the growing popularity of habaib preaching. Some argue that it is a product of rising piety and spiritualism while others point to Arabising cultural revivalism in Indonesia. Based on my fieldwork, I found that both doctrinal and marketing aspects are significant in driving their popularity. I argue that the emergence of habaib is connected to their accumulating religious capital borne of their efforts to bolster their authority and profile in a highly competitive market for spiritual products. The habaib have numerous means to elevate their religious standing including strategic use of venues and event management, savvy merchandising and advertising, anti-wahhabi campaigning, and promotion of the Yemen-Indonesia connection. I further argue that the more habaib promote traditional Islam to Indonesian Muslims, the more they enhance their authority, popularity, and thus economic rewards.
