This paper attempts to address the theory of knowledge management from Islamic perspective. It highlights the Islamic conception of knowledge, in terms of understanding its nature in the reality of knowledge society. This is done, with the assumption that once knowledge is managed, it is possible then to look at its functions and processes of development in the form of scientific realm. With regards to the Islamic conception of knowledge, the Qur’an invites human beings to read both the natural phenomena and the divine text (revelation). This paper aims to analyze how knowledge is managed according to the Islamic epistemology. Generally speaking, knowledge management and classification are very much influenced by the way society conceptualizes and realizes knowledge. Eventually, knowledge management and classification guide man to the ways of knowledge utilization. Therefore, any success achieved by a person is an output of his/her knowledge understanding and knowledge growth within himself. In this status, human beings might be influenced by a certain situations, limitations and constrains internally or externally that lead him to persuade either body knowledge or the functional usage of knowledge in making his own individual success in a form of user-centric based values.
