Muhammadiyah University Of Mataram is one of Muhammadiyah’s endeavors in the field of education. Historically, Muhammadiyah is an association established on the 8th of Dhu al-Hijjah 1330 Hijri or November 18, 1912 AD by K.H. Ahmad Dahlan. Muhammadiyah was first recognized as a legal entity by the Dutch Colonial government based on Gouvernement Besluit of August 22, 1914, number 81. During the administration of the Republic of Indonesia, the legal status of Muhammadiyah was still recognized based on the Letter from the Directorate General of Legal Development of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Indonesia Number J.A.5/160/4, and most recently reinforced by the Letter from the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia Directorate General of General Legal Administration dated January 29, 2004, Number C.2-HT.01.03.A.165 regarding the legal status of the Muhammadiyah association.

The purpose and objective of Muhammadiyah is to uphold and elevate Islam so that a truly Islamic society is realized (see Article 6 of the Muhammadiyah Statutes). To achieve this purpose and objective, Muhammadiyah conducts da’wah (proselytizing) through Amar Ma’ruf Nahi Munkar (enjoining good and forbidding evil) and Tajdid (renewal), which are implemented in various fields of life (see Article 7 of the Muhammadiyah Statutes and Article 3 of the Muhammadiyah Bylaws), including the field of education as stipulated in the letter from the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia dated July 24, 1974, Number 23628/MPK/74 regarding the recognition of Muhammadiyah as a legal entity operating in the field of education.
