Abstract

The concept of multicultural is a concept that has existed along with the teaching of Islam as conveyed by the Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h. Islam as a concept incorporates the concept of openness, and acceptance of many races, religion, culture and faith. Islam is not limited to "Religion" in the normal sense of the word, and in fact is a complete way of life, its presence is a gift from Allah (rahmatan lil alamin), which can be used for the benefit of man on the earth. Islam is a religion that acknowledges the existence of other religions as sunnatullah. In Islam there is no distinguishing between skin colours as the reality of the creation of man begins from one man, Adam. The creation of man from different nationalities and families was to create the basis for getting to know and helping each other. The culture of diversity in the implementation of Islamic laws is evidence of Islam's acknowledgement and celebration of multicultural aspect. Hence this paper will explain as a preliminary view on the importance of Islamic Education teachers to understand the concept of cultural diversity that exists in schools especially in a multiracial society like Malaysia. Exploring the understanding of teachers toward the concept of diversity is hoped to contribute to the practice in the classroom. This preliminary study was used an interview methods. It is hoped that an understanding of this diversity will at least be able to overcome any misperception and misunderstanding between Muslims and non-Muslims. The most important is this understanding will form the basis for unity among the plural society in Malaysia.
