Abstract

The dilemma and confusion of the Ummah will never end without a clear understanding of the meaning of “integration” and “Islamization of knowledge”. Muslims are still confused and doubtful about the kind of Islamization direction to take. Different scholars differ in their interpretation of the theory of Islamization of knowledge and suggest different approaches and methodologies to it. In order to have a better scenario, the study attempts to address the following set of questions: 1. What are the causes and effects of the bifurcation or dualism in educational system of the Ummah? 2. What is the nature of integrated curriculum as perceived by existing contemporary Islamic schools? and 3. What are the implications of revisiting the concept of integrated curriculum from the Islamic Weltanschauung for contemporary Islamic education system? In order to elucidate the above questions, the philosophical and historical methodologies as well as analytical study would be employed. Relevant texts, conceptions, and ideas from the three main kinds of sources—primary, secondary, and tertiary sources of literature—will be reviewed and analyzed. As a result, the balance judgment can be made in order to implement the concept. Keywords: Islamic Education, Islamization of Knowledge, Islamic School, Integrated Curriculum, Educational dualism, Contemporary Issues of Muslims
