During the transitional period of Palembang residency in 1823 AD, the task of the headman was made broadly by the Government of the Dutch East Indies. The method in this study uses qualitative descriptive methods to explain the problem-solving in this study. Data collection uses library research, namely by conducting laboratories in libraries and Google websites including Google Scholar. Data analysis is the process of systematically searching and compiling data obtained from library studies and Google website sources. The role of the headman during the Palembang Residency was not only to take care of religion but to take care of the people including in the management of occupation records, religious education, and advisors in the state court (Vandread). The position of chief in the Dutch colonial period was restricted to the natives by limiting the authority of Prince Pengulu Nata Agama to deal with problems in the capital and for the interior of Hooffdenghulu in charge. In conclusion, during the Dutch colonial period, the task of the headman was more general and more helpful to the Dutch East Indies government in dealing with the problems of the Muslims
