Development of community nowadays has brought us into more complicated problems in Islamic laws. To solve the problems, fatwa is one of the important mechanisms for Muslims to resolve the Islamic laws problems whether in upper of lower level of community. Strategic and organised management is needed to obtain solutions to the problems so that it may not go astray from the norms directed by Islam. Islamic scholars have put guidelines and careful details as the execution will go accurately and able to solve the problems. To achieve these goals, two objectives are set up. First, explaining the process of fatwa-making. Second, analysing strategic management contained in fatwa-making process. This study used content analysis method to the data obtained from documentation method. Research results showed that fatwa-making process in Islam has four main processes which are al-Taswir, al-Takyif, al-Hukm, and al-Ifta. Clearly, fatwa-making process visualises a complete and concrete strategic management to avoid mistakes in the law determination to the problems faced by Muslim community.
