Orientalism is one of the challenges for the development of the contemporary Islamic civilization whether the Muslim society in general or the Islamic preacher in particular. This becomes a challenge when some orientalists who converted to Islam with the aim of destroying Islam. These people produce writings based on Islam, but presenting the facts which are contradict to the truth in order to bring confusion among Muslims as what has been done by Snouck Hurgronje in Indonesia.However, some orientalists who converted to Islam with the conviction of Islam as the true religion. Therefore, this study focuses on Muhammad Asad (formerly known as Leopold Weiss) (1900-1992) who was a Jewish orientalist and had converted to Islam. This study has found that Muhammad Asad’s civilizational thoughts are clear about the distinguished characterisctics of Islamic civilization namely transcendent, universal, balanced and controlled. While its essential elements include Tawhid, al-Qur'an and al-Sunnah and knowledge. He also identified the main challenges facing the Islamic civilization which are clash of civilizations, Orientalist threats and the worldly (Pseudo) scholars. This study has implications on the urgent needs of civilizational dialogue and the Islamization of education. In summary, Muhammad Asad’s approarch did not reflect himself as a misleading orientalist.
