The Indonesian economy is growing very rapidly. It is depicted by the emergence of numerous industries, including the print and electronic media industry or the press. At the same time, the reform period has given "freedom of the press" to its position. However, it is common for the press industry to inflict harm to the consumers. Subsequently, a legal remedy in the form of class action comes to be known. In this context, this paper is presented, which aims to find out the opinion of Islamic criminal law regarding class action against press companies according to Law Number 8 of 1999 concerning Consumer Protection. The results of the study concluded that the cause of occurrence of a class action against the press company is due to the failure which causes mass damages, including negligence of the rule of law (iqnorantia Juris), negligence of the function (iqnorantia function), negligence of information (iqnorantia infom), negligent of national philosophy (iqnorantia nation), and others. Class action against press companies occurs because of the disobedience of the laws and regulations in force.
