Overview

In the history of Java the Wali Songo, or Nine Saints, are well-known for the spread of Islam. They were the Islamic leaders at the time of arrival of Islam in Java. The Nine Walis were revered as Islamic scholars, because not only did they possess great knowledge on religious affaires, they also possessed spiritual powers.

The origin of the word ‘Wali‘ derives from the Arabic ‘walla yu walli‘, which means ‘to provide power’, or ‘to give authority’. In Indonesia the term ‘Wali‘ is described as follows: ‘a powerful person’, or ‘a person to whom authority is given’. Also, a Wali is a person beloved by God, someone to whom authority is given by God; a religious person, and a leader among people. There are still more definitions of the word ‘Wali‘, however, the aforementioned definitions are what describe the meaning best in the historical context of 15th century Java up till now. The word ‘sanga‘ (pronounced as ‘songo‘) means ‘nine’ in Javanese. Thus, ‘Wali Songo‘ means the ‘Nine Walis’, or ‘Nine Saints’.
