Abstract

Islamic education is able to preserve and transmit the basic values of society and in contrast, it also can be a source of confusion in the society. In addition, education can also help developing the growth of personality and nurturing the individual identity. This article will be aiming to discuss Islamic education and its role in strengthening the Malay civilization. Islamic education has its own strength because through it we are able to put a solid foundation of excellent human civilization in terms of worldly life as well as hereafter. In the Quran there are many verses that address the educational aspects of human civilization, and even arrival of the Quran itself is intended to educate people. Similarly through the Hadith and sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), many of his narrations are focused on the importance of education in empowering the civilization of community and further enhanced by a few examples of his actions that in encouraging Muslims to love knowledge. Therefore, this article will further discuss about the role of Islamic education in empowering the Malay identity, especially in holistic, first-class minded human development.
