Zetty Nurzuliana Rashed


Muslim youths are a national asset that needs to be strengthened their identity in accordance with the development and needs of a civilized country. The success of a country lies in the quality and resilience of the younger generation in leading society towards success. They are the ones who will shape the ups and downs of this nation's civilization in the future because they are the heirs of the country's leadership. However, identity disorders faced by adolescents today are quite worrying, especially when they suffer from self-forgetfulness due to shallow knowledge and lack of civilization. In the post-truth era, some of them are more likely to accept an argument based on their emotions and beliefs rather than one based on facts. The research method used in this study is library research done by collecting articles or scientific papers related to learning planning, learning design, learning model in which related with Islamic Education. This concept paper examines the challenges of Islamic education in shaping the future of Muslim young generation. Based on the research conducted there are several challenges which are the position of Islamic education within the larger educational system, Islamic education processes and pedagogy, efforts of Islamic scholars, misperceptions in the West and the Muslim World about Islamic Education and also politicization and militarization of Islamic education. Therefore, the current development of adolescence should be re-examined because it is seen as a long-term interest that needs to be managed as best as possible.
