The One Day One Juz ( ODOJ ) Community in Indonesia

image of Asiascape: Digital Asia

This article describes an online Islamic community in Indonesia called One Day One Juz (ODOJ). This research shows how ODOJ encourages its members to recite a section of the Quran every day, thus transforming some of its members’ religious practices and enabling a ‘new way of being religious’. Understanding ODOJ as a ‘digital religion’, this article details the social and technological dimensions of the group’s disciplinary mechanisms as a new type of religious institution. These include the structure of ODOJ’s online network, the reflective engagement of the members with its regulations, and the specific technological affordances of the applications and devices used.
