Teens need to understand the dimensions and implications of their sexual development. Such understanding will foster adolescent awareness and ability to show healthy and responsible sexual behavior. But not all adolescents have sufficient knowledge of sexuality and reproductive health. Adolescents do not understand that the aspect of sexuality not only has physical dimensions but also psychic, social, and religious morals. Adolescents also do not yet have an awareness of the importance of maintaining reproductive health and showing sexual behavior in accordance with religious values adopted. This study aims to examine the effectiveness of value-based Islamic sex education training provided to adolescents in improving knowledge about sexuality and reproductive health. This research used experimental method with control group pretest posttest design. The study used 1 treatment group and 1 control group. Measurements were made before and after treatment to find out the increased knowledge of adolescents on sexuality and reproductive health based on Islamic values. The number of subjects as many as 35 people aged 13-15 years (experimental group = 20 people and 15 people control group). The results showed that there were differences of knowledge of adolescents before and after training of sex education based on Islamic values in experimental group (t = 2,904; p <0,01) and vice versa there was no difference in control group (t = 1,0486; p> 0.05). This suggests that adolescent knowledge about reproductive health and healthy sexual behavior can be enhanced through sex education that integrates the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of Islam in adolescents and involves the process of providing information, discussion, practice, reflection, and expression.
