The qualitative method is used with interviews, field observations, and documentation as data collection techniques. This study shows MAFTA Indonesia prioritizes the education and practical application of Islamic teachings, as well as promoting citizenship responsibility. Its core philosophy revolves around “togetherness” and “compassion,” fostering equality among its members. Mass weddings in Kampung Matfa serve to strengthen the bonds within the community and dispel negative perceptions.
