Abstract: This paper examines the practice of nyabek toloh in Romben Guna village, Dungkek Region, Sumenep-Madura. The purposes of nyabek toloh are to symbolize the establishment of a relationship between the family of a male and female fiancé; to show the responsibility of a man to a woman by giving toloh; to maintain man’s dignity, and to maintain the tradition of sangkolan (elders). Conducting nyabek toloh is a must in abhakalan (marriage proposal); the absence of nyabek toloh will lead to the cancellation of abhakalan. This article argues that the tradition of nyabek toloh is the harmonization of Islamic law and custom, even not as a whole. There are some Islamic elements in this tradition. The tradition is not Islamic teaching, but it is the product of the society, especially the people of Romben Guna village, Dungkek Sub-District, Sumenep District, Madura. This can be seen as a smooth cohesion between religion and tradition in Indonesia.
