Abstract: The revolutionary and dynamic situation that occurred in Aceh over the past three centuries, especially after the death of Sheikh Maulana Syiah Kuala, has divided the concentration of Acehnese leaders and intellectuals in maintaining their historical heritage so that many are abandoned, lost, destroyed and even deliberately eliminated for reasons security. The author has several reasons for fear of resource persons who have valuable relics in the form of important Aceh manuscripts, because if they are known the authorities will be taken and they are accused of being rebels or separatists. As a result, many important manuscripts of Aceh’s civilization relics were embedded, lost or changed hands abroad. The fundamentalism of Syiah can be manifested in such a latent nuance of adaptive ideology and survive the life of ritual, tradition, and its millenarian believe even in the turbulent time. Wahhabi should not be left in Aceh and Acehnese supported the insistence of the santri to reject all Wahabi and Syiah denominations in Aceh.
