Reading activities have a very positive impact, including being able to stimulate mentally, reduce stress, add insight, improve memory quality, train thinking and analysis skills. The teacher’s interest and reading power are needed in order to strengthen his competence in carrying out the learning process. The first revelation was about the command to read, so reading activities should become a culture from an early age, especially for a teacher or prospective educator. Students of the Islamic Religious Education Study Program (PAI), Faculty of Islamic Studies (FAI), Muhammadiyah University of Yogyakarta (UMY) are future educators, especially in the practice and internalization of religious values. As a prospective educator in the field of religion, reading activity is undoubtedly an essential element in increasing the competence of a prospective teacher. The primary purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which the interest and reading power of Islamic Education students are relevant to their increased competence as prospective teachers. The research method used is descriptive qualitative with data collection through observation, interviews, documentation, and questionnaires as data reinforcement. The result shows both students’ reading power and interest were moderate and closely related to the learning system. Hence, the lecturers can assign tasks to review journals according to their field of study and create a reading community.
