Indonesia is a country with the biggest Muslim population in the world. Most teachers and students in this country are, therefore, Muslims. Being Muslims, most of the students in Indonesian schools and universities must be interested in everything Islamic, including "Islamic" English. This interest will create a positive attitude towards this kind of English, and this positive attitude will in turn enhance their motivation in learning English. And high motivation will undoubtedly result in successful learning, as experts in language learning have attested. There are several types of Islamic religious English materials that can be used in EFL classrooms, such as English translation of the Qur'an and Hadith(the Prophet's sayings), and English texts related to Islam and its teachings. This paper tries to explore the possibilities of using such materials in the teaching of English as a foreign language in Indonesia.
