Authors : Mohd Azrani Bin Asran, Wan Fariza Alyati Binti Wan Zakaria and Mohd Azmir Mohd Nizah

Abstract: This study discusses 2 types of integration in education that is integration of education system and integration of knowledge from 2 great Islamic scholars that is Al-Hadi and Al-Faruqi. Although, there is a huge difference in terms of time in which Al-Hadi lives during the age of colonialism while Al-Faruqi lives in the post-colonial era, both of them were founders of the idea of integration of Islamic education. This study seeks to examine the concept of educational integration, as proposed by Al-Hadi and Al-Faruqi in 3 aspects that is the weaknesses of traditional Islamic education, the acceptance of Western education and the integration of education. This study is a qualitative study in nature using content analysis approach. Data were hugely depend and analyzed from the writings of these two figures. The results showed that Al-Faruqi’s integration of education not only improves Al-Hadi’s idea of integration but in fact it correct misconceptions in Al-Hadi’s idea of integration, especially on the acceptance of Western knowledge. However, both agree that from colonial times until present day, there are still weaknesses and insufficient in the traditional Islamic education system, especially in terms of pedagogy and human resources. This study suggests that the integration of the pedagogical aspects of Islamic education should be developed, as the way to produce a balanced Muslim individual that can harmoniously combine modernity with religiosity.
