It is generally argued that knowledge is free from any intrinsic values that may render it biased toward a culture or religious tradition (Bashir, 2000). However, Muslim scholars such as Ismail Al-Faruqi and Syed Naquib Al-Attas refuted such claim as they believe such perception would put Muslim students at risk of being helpless against the onslaught of scientifc truth. Survey research design was employed to execute this investigation in which a number of educators from various felds offered in UiTM Melaka were selected to answer 11 questions related to their awareness and perception, attitude, and implementation of Islamization of knowledge. General overview from the results revealed a rather promising outlook to the prior assumption that educators are oblivious towards the concept of Islamization of knowledge.</p> Fazlinda Hamzah Nor Adila Kedin Mohd Azlan Shah Sharifudin ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-01-01 2017-01-01 19 1 22 Naqli-Aqli Socio-Cultural Instructional Discourse: Characteristics Analysis http://uijournal.usim.edu.my/index.php/uij/article/view/46 <p>The purpose of this study was to analyze the characteristics of an instructional discourse within the realm of the socio-cultural theory with the integration of naqli perspectives. A pre-school teacher and a group of pre-school children participated in the study. Real time non-participant observation, field notes and postobservation of the videotaped of the selected conversation were the methods of data collection for the study. The data were analyzed qualitatively using the coding derived the literature review. The data were categorized in three characteristic themes: the interdependence between social and individual processes, co-construction of knowledge and the use of meaningful and purposeful language. The findings show that the selected instructional conversation reflects the characteristics of discourse within the realm of the socio-cultural theory. The implications of the study are discussed within the context of second language teaching.</p> Harison Mohd Sidek Tun Nur Afizah Ariff Zainal Hazleena Baharun Mohd Muzhafar Idrus Noor Saazai Mat Saad ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-01-01 2017-01-01 19 23 33 Kesan Pembelajaran Koperatif Dan Tradisional Terhadap Pencapaian Akademik Penguasaan Kemahiran Jawi http://uijournal.usim.edu.my/index.php/uij/article/view/47 <p>Jawi is an element that has been taught in national schools since the introduction of j-QAF program in the National education system. The curriculum was introduced to inculcate interest in learning the Jawi script among the students and thereby mastering the reading and writing skills of Jawi. However, until now some students are unable to master Jawi. The statistics of the achievement for the first cohort of the j-QAF programme released by the Curriculum Development Department of the Malaysian Education Ministry in 2005, showed that the achievement was inconsistent. Thus, the purpose of this research is to see how far cooperative and traditional learning affect the students’ achievement level in Jawi. The quasi-experimental method used in this research involved two groups of students -- the experimental group (Cooperative Method) and the controlled group (Traditional Method) who had undergone the pre-test and the post-test. The result shows that the cooperative method is more effective. It is hoped that this research can inspire the teachers involved in implementing this cooperative method in their teaching. Furthermore, the result of this research can also be a guideline to the ministry in formulating a better and effective cooperative teaching and cooperative learning module for Jawi.</p> <p>ABSTRAK</p> <p>Jawi merupakan salah satu elemen yang difokuskan di sekolahsekolah kebangsaan sejak program j-QAF diperkenalkan dalam sistem pendidikan negara. Program ini diwujudkan supaya dapat menanam minat mempelajari penguasaan tulisan jawi dalam kalangan pelajar sekaligus dapat menguasai kemahiran membaca dan menulis dengan mudah. Namun dalam tempoh ini, para pelajar masih tidak dapat menguasai Jawi. Berdasarkan statistik pencapaian penguasaan Jawi program j-QAF kohort pertama, 2005 yang dikeluarkan oleh bahagian pembangunan kurikulum, Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia (KPM) menunjukkan pencapaian yang tidak konsisten. Bagi tujuan ini, kajian dijalankan untuk melihat sejauh mana pembelajaran koperatif dan juga tradisional berkesan dalam meningkatkan pencapaian Jawi. Kaedah kajian menggunakan kaedah kuasi eksperimental di mana dua kumpulan pelajar yang terdiri daripada kumpulan eksperimen (Kaedah Koperatif) dan juga kawalan (Kaedah tradisional) yang menjalani ujian pra dan dan ujian post. Dapatan kajian menunjukkan kaedah koperatif lebih berkesan ke atas pencapaian Jawi. Implikasi kajian ini diharapakan dapat memberi inspirasi kepada guru-guru yang terlibat dalam melaksanakan kaedah koperatif dalam pengajaran mereka . Di samping itu, hasil kajian juga dapat memberi garis panduan pada pada pihak kementerian untuk merangka satu modul pengajaran dan pembelajaran koperatif dengan lebih baik dan berkesan.</p> Rafisah Osman Fauziah Md Jaafar Khaliza Saidin Nurhafizah Abdan ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-01-01 2017-01-01 19 57 70 Keterbatasan Fahaman Fungsi Huruf Ya’ Dalam Nahu Arab http://uijournal.usim.edu.my/index.php/uij/article/view/48 <p>The letter Yā’ &nbsp;(ي)is one of the basic letters in the Arabic language that possesses multiple functions. &nbsp; However, majority of the students’ understanding is more focused on only one of its functions, that is as a ضمير (pronoun) attributing it to أنا ) which means I. Thus, the objective of this study is to determine the level of the students’ skills in distinguishing the various functions of Yā’, to identify the appropriate usage of Yā’ in a sentence structure as well as to analyse the students’ ability to relate Yā’s function to i’rab. The results of this research can help the teachers to draft, diversify and to improve the teachings of the Arabic Language specifically in the Arabic Syntax. By using the qualitative method consisting of written tests and interviews on eight respondents from Alsagoff Arab School, ranging from primary five to secondary three, this study was conducted based on the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy Theory. The outcome of the study showed that the understanding of ضمير (pronoun) attributing it to أنا ) which means I, was more dominant than the others. The limitations occurred because the students’ cognitive skills were only at the level of remembering and understanding. In conclusion, the students’ limitations in understanding the usage of letter Yā’ were due to their incompetence in applying and analyzing previous learnt information. &nbsp; As a result they were unable to assess the differences of the multiple functions of the letter Yā’.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;Huruf Yā’ merupakan salah satu huruf hijaiyyah yang mempunyai pelbagai fungsi dalam nahu Arab. Namun, pemahaman majoriti pelajar lebih tertumpu pada satu fungsi iaitu sebagai ضمير (kata ganti nama) أنا yang bermaksud ‘saya’. Justeru, Objektif kajian ini dilakukan adalah untuk mengenal pasti tahap kemahiran pelajar dalam membezakan fungsi Yā’, mengenal pasti ketepatan penggunaan Yā’ dalam struktur ayat, serta menganalisis kemampuan pelajar menghubungjalin fungsi huruf Yā’ dengan i’rab. Hasil dari kajian ini boleh membantu para pengajar merangka, mempelbagaikan dan menambahbaik pengajaran bahasa Arab khususnya bagi subjek nahu. Dengan menggunakan metode kualitatif berdasarkan ujian bertulis dan temu bual terhadap lapan orang responden bermula dari darjah enam hingga tingkatan tiga di Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah, kajian ini dijalankan dengan berpandukan kerangka teori revisi Taksonomi Bloom. Hasilnya, dapatan kajian menunjukkan pemahaman ضمير (kata ganti nama) kepada أنا yang bermaksud ‘saya’ lebih dominan dari yang lain. Keterbatasan ini berlaku kerana pelajar menggunakan aspek kognitif mereka pada tahap mengingat dan memahami. Kesimpulannya, keterbatasan pelajar dalam fahaman fungsi huruf Ya’ berpunca pada kelemahan mereka yang tidak mengaplikasi dan menganalisis sesuatu maklumat yang diterima terlebih dahulu. Akibatnya mereka tidak mampu menilai perbezaan fungsi kepelbagaian huruf Yā’ dalam nahu Arab.</p> Zauwiah Abidin Azhar Muhammad ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-01-01 2017-01-01 19 71 88 Tahap Penguasaan Kemahiran Insaniah Pelajar Pengajian Islam http://uijournal.usim.edu.my/index.php/uij/article/view/49 <p>The study is a descriptive survey study that aims to see the level of soft skills among Islamic Studies students’ courses.
