Transliteration Guidelines

  • If an Indonesian term exists for a word, use it.
  • All technical terms from languages written in other than Indonesian language or in non-Latin
  • alphabets must be italicized and fully transliterated with diacritical marks (macrons and dots),
  • g., ʿasyāʾ.
  • Diacritics should not be added to personal names, place names, names of political parties and
  • organizations, e.g., Jamal ʿAbd al-Nasir.
  • Inseparable prepositions, conjunctions, and other prefixes are connected with what follows by a
  • hyphen: bi-, wa-, li-, la-. Example: fī al-ʿirāq wa-miṣr. (Note: the preposition fī is not an
  • inseparable prefix in the Arabic script and thus is not treated as one by IJMES.)
  • When one of the above prepositions or conjunctions is followed by al, the a will elide,
  • forming a contraction rendered as wa-l-, bi-l-, li-l-, and la-l-. Example: fī miṣr wa-l-ʿirāq.
  • The definite article (e.g., the Arabic al-) is lowercase everywhere, except when the first word of
  • a sentence or an endnote.
  • The Arabic tāʾ marbūṭa is rendered ah not at, except in iḍāfah constructions.
  • When an Arabic name is shortened to just the surname, the al- is retained. For example, Hasan
  • al-Banna becomes al-Banna. Connectors in names—such as bin, abu, etc.—are lowercase only
  • when preceded by a name, e.g., Usama bin Ladin, but Bin Ladin, Ibn Khaldun, etc.
  • Long vowel should use diacritic mark '-' (dash) above the vowel letters: ā, ī, ū. For
  • examples: al-masājid li al-ṣāliḥīn, al-jāmi’ah al-ḥukūmiyyah, żālika al-kitāb lā raiba fīh.
