The various verses of the Quran explain that zikr and Tafakkur are always related. They should have become the spirit of the education system so that the graduates could possess a balanced zikr and Tafakkur . On the contrary, education is more focused on the development of knowledge. The dichotomy of knowledge affects education where ideally Islamic education includes zikr and Tafakkur education. Therefore, the integration of zikr and Tafakkur is something important, urgent, and beneficial for the improvement of the nation's morality.
The purpose of this study is to ensure the importance of the concept of zikr and Tafakkur in the perspective of the Qur'an by providing thought on the importance of the integration of zikr and Tafakkur in Islamic education so that it could be the basis for the development of Islamic education. The approach used in this study was the qualitative approach by employing the library research method. The integration of zikr and Tafakkur in Islamic educational institutions can be realized if the Qur'an is made as to the main base of knowledge source by researching, understanding, and deepening the science and technology based on Qur'an.
