Basic Consept and Education Objective in Islam (Ta’lim, Tarbiyah and Ta’dib)

Juwairiani Juwairiani


The terms tarbiyah, ta'lim and ta'dib in Islam have different semantic aspects, concepts and ideas that show that the problems of Islamic education are eternal. The development of human civilization and new discoveries in this field will affect the direction of travel. orientation, form and system of Islamic religious education. This requires educators to conduct extensive research on educational concepts that have been applied and agreed upon from time to time. The use of the term "tarbiah", although widely used, still seems to be a controversial issue. Today's Islamic educators tend to use the term ta'dib rather than tarbiyah. In its conceptual structure, ta'dib includes elements of science (’ilm), teaching (ta'lim), and good education (tarbiyah). Therefore Ta’dib is the most appropriate and accurate term to describe Islamic education.
