Wisber Wiryanto


Western secularization is the main cause of educational problems and is extremely damaging if it is not solved immediately. Based on al Faruqi’s theory, the only way to solve educational problems caused by the secularization of Human Resource Management (HRM) is through the Islamization of Knowledge (IOK). The research used descriptive qualitative method will answer the main question: how is the operationalization of Al Faruqi’s theory solving education problems caused by secularization? This research aims to apply the IOK al-Faruqi theory into the IOHRM concept, with the framework consisting of the input through 15 HRM textbooks, which
are used by several universities in Indonesia with a Western worldview as a dominant tendency than Islamic worldview. This research analyzes the process and synthesis of Western and Islamic-legacy of HRM; and as its output, a non-secular HRM textbook using the Islamic worldview approach. As the result, this output will reduce the dominance of the secular HRM textbook in the Western worldview approach. The findings of this research are: (1) To create the IOHRM concept derived from the IOK al-Faruqi theory, which is applied through a process of analysis and synthesis of Western and Islamic-legacy of HRM; (2) Analysis of the IOHRM, through the process, analyzes the category, and then analyze the relevance, differences, and problems of Western and Islamic-legacy of HRM; (3) Synthesis of the IOHRM, by integrating Western and Islamic-legacy of HRM, using the dual process of the IOK al-Attas theory in Islamic worldview approach; and (4) an Islamic HRM textbook.
