Abstract
A diversity of social life is a big challenge in bringing harmony to the political values. Sometimes in social life, harmonious values that should be the foundation of building a peaceful social life foundation instead turn into a threat of social disintegration because it only promotes anti-humanist, anti-peaceful and discriminatory values. To escape from such condition, it needs a good political education. Then, what kind of political education is considered to be a solution in realizing a humanist Islamic education. Trough literature and thoughts review, this paper concluded two things. First, humanist Islam holds that the substantial moral values brought by the Qur'an have given clear guidance on how human life is built on the values of justice and equality. The main purpose of the Qur'an is to provide guidance in the form of values and commands of social ethics that are upheld and binding in the socio-political activities of mankind. Therefore, the necessity of upholding the moral-ethical values of the Qur'an becomes an obligation for Muslims, whenever and wherever they may be in a constructive, positive way. At this point the scene of existing and creative interpretations must always be contextualized with contemporary developments and condition. Second, political education based on Islamic humanitarian thinking is based on the values of humanism which is the essence of human beings. This political education material should be sought to build fundamental human consciousness. The orientation of this political education is in order to build awareness of equality and build a substantive Islam.
