Among Muslims there are thoughts about the relationship between Islam and politics. This thinking shows a fundamental difference in the actualization of religious beliefs into political actions. The marginalization of Islamic politics reached its peak with the enactment of a single principle which meant the weakening of formalistic and legalistic Islamic political movements and encouraged some of them to further reformulate the meaning and political strategy of Islam. They consider it necessary to accommodate the government's idea to erode suspicion between Islam and the state. The reality of Islamic politics which is considered to have failed to motivate Muslims, especially young intellectuals, is to look for new political formulations so that they can play a role in the country. One of them is a reorientation of the meaning of Islamic politics which is described in a legalistic and formalist style. The post-truth era changes various paradigms because everything seems situational, which is triggered by a lack of trust in science, social and economic inequality, and a decrease in social capital. This situation also occurs in political life in Indonesia, where the reality of a new political orientation is more substantive and integrative political direction. This means that this new approach prioritizes the content of Islamic values as a source of inspiration for political activities as well as mutual acceptance and adjustment between Muslims and the state.
