This paper presentation stresses the importance for Islamic Studies in Muslim countries to integrate the study and research about Buddhism. Buddhism is not a new religion for the Muslims. Muslim scholars have studied and written about Buddhism since their 8th century arrival in Asia. Muslims scholars of Comparative Religion made important contribution to the study of Buddhism during the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries. But is a lost tradition today. It ended during the colonial and post colonial era. Islamic Studies programs began depending on Orientalism (which has Christian theological and Western epistemological foundations) to study and comment on Buddhism.
