This research aims to examine the sharī’ah implementation in the public. It specifically examines models of the development of sakinah family in some institutions providing the course for Muslim families. It has been conducted in the Religious Affairs Office (Kantor Urusan Agama), the Institute of Professional Mother (Institut Ibu Profesional) and the School of Mother (Sekolah Ibu) in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. It finds that in terms of method, the Kantor Urusan Agama, the Institut Ibu Profesional and the Sekolah Ibu have had similar method in delivering its subject which is face to face course. Yet, the Institut Ibu Profesional has had more varied methods such as combining “in class course” with the online course. Regarding with the offered subjects, the Kantor Urusan Agama has emphasised the importance of Islamic law, while others have focused on the issues of parenting and families guidance, especially mothers. However, while the Institut Ibu Profesional has taught general issues, the Sekolah Ibu has discussed more specific issues. This research argues that in spite of the fact that each institution has its own speciality in conducting its course (implementing sharī’ah), all of them have played significant roles in developing the sakinah family among Muslims in the region.
