Abstract

Education stands as a cornerstone for societal progress, offering pathways to individual fulfillment and collective prosperity. Yet, amidst diverse interpretations and value systems, the essence and objectives of education remain subject to ongoing debate and negotiation. This paper embarks on an exploration of the concept of Islamic education, drawing insights from a rich tapestry of traditional and contemporary literature on Islamic pedagogy.

By delving into the foundational principles of Islamic education, this study illuminates its distinctive characteristics and sheds light on its compatibility with the ideals of sustainable development. Through a comprehensive analysis, the paper elucidates the intrinsic connections between Islamic educational philosophy, cultural values, and the broader aspirations of sustainable development.

Central to this exploration is the recognition of Islamic education's emphasis on holistic development, fostering the integration of spiritual, intellectual, and moral dimensions within the educational framework. The study underscores the significance of Islamic values such as compassion, justice, and stewardship in shaping educational practices that not only nurture individual growth but also contribute to the well-being of society and the environment.
