The paper concludes that value in Western conception is relative, created by human ratio and neglects the revelation, whilst Islam puts the revelation as a primary source of values which makes education in Islam means the value of education itself. Therefore, it should not be accepted by Muslims without adequate criticism, b ecause there are some fundamental differences between the Western worldview and the Islamic worldview.
