Abstract

The aim of this study is to explore the Islamic culture in English for Islamic Studies (EIS) classroom. In the course of EIS, the priority should not only be given to increase international understanding by enabling the students to speak another language but also understanding the cultural values. The study conducted an exploratory approach in which data were collected through in-depth interviews with English lecturers, and a questionnaire was distributed to the Islamic education students. The findings identified Islamic education has included EIS as part of its curriculum in its current advancement. In this regards, the study showed that how EIS in Indonesia has developed, what challenges it experiences and what opportunities it possesses in the context of Islamic higher education in Indonesia. The implications of the study provide a number of valuable insights into the expectations of EIS classroom. It is expected that the Muslim students could both achieve the foreign language skills and, the same time, become more aware filtering the culture, which is irrelevant with theirs, contained in the foreign language they are learning. The results of this study also indicated that EIS in Indonesia needs to incorporate Islamic values and show that EIS learning put no threats and negative influences on Indonesian culture in general and Islamic religious values in particular
