This paper aims to reveal the problematic Islamic education perspective of Fazlur Rahman and the thinking of renewal of its renewal. The emergence of Rahman's ideas is motivated by his appreciation of the development of Islamic education in the modern era in some predominantly Muslim countries such as Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt and Pakistan. According to Fazlur Rahman Islamic education in these countries are still faced with problems; Educational goals are not directed toward positive goals. The dichotomy of the education system. The low quality of the students, the emergence of broken and unborn persons who have deep spiritual and intellectual commitment to Islam. Difficult to find qualified and professional educators and have a creative mind and integrated. Lack of books available in the library. To overcome this according to Rahman there are three efforts that must be done: (1) Orienting the goal of Islamic Education to the life of the world and akherat as well and sourced from the Qur'an. (2) Eliminating the psychological burden of Muslims in the face of the West. (3) Eliminating negative attitudes toward science. The existence of the dichotomy of the Islamic education system has led to the low quality of the students, the emergence of broken and unborn persons who have deep spiritual and intellectual commitment to Islam. To overcome this problem there are four attempts to be made: (1) Providing Qur'anic lessons and systematic commentary methods, enabling the Qur'an not only serve as a source of moral inspiration but also serve as a central reference for problem solving emerge to surface. (2) Provide material in the discipline of Islamic sciences historically, critically, and diverge, so that through this effort can integrate these thoughts into the concept of a complete and integrated Islam. (3) Intensify the mastery of foreign languages such as Arabic and English in addition to the national language. (4) Growing tolerant attitude to dissent.
