Pesantren Karangasem is located in Paciran, which borders Brondong, Lamongan, where religious life in the two coastal villages of Lamongan faces serious challenges because it is becoming pockets of movement for Islamic extremist groups. This article poses two thesis questions: First, what is the form of the resilience of the Pesantren Karangasem from the ideology of religious violent extremism; Second, how this form of resilience can have implications for preventing the entry of radical Islamic actors into the religious life of the coastal community of Lamongan.
