Humans are created not uniform, both race, tradition and even religion. This diversity on the one hand can be regarded as an asset but on the other hand has the potential to trigger conflict. Conflicts that are motivated by religion are investigated stemming from the reading of religious texts, in this case the Qur'an and its interpretation. The interpretive explanations presented do not pay attention to aspects of multicultural community diversity. If the text that is read becomes a problem, then how does the role of the interpreter explain the verses of the Koran by taking into account the conditions of certain communities which were created differently from the beginning? Then whether the interpretation that has been done by the interpreter has responded to multiculturalism? Multicultural interpretation becomes an answer for people who live with different cultures. Based on this background the research was conducted aimed at building a new paradigm of interpretation by explaining the verses of the Qur'an that explain about humans by considering different social aspects of society. Because according to Komaruddin Hidayat the content and direction of a work will be influenced by its social aspects.
