The study aims to analize the integrated educational system in Malaysian Higher Education Institutions The methods are involves the curriculum criticism, historical and philosophical analysis. It is a fact that compared to inslltut1ons which provide Islamic oriented education in different field, the Muslim world has increased number of secular schools, colleges and universities. Certain universities provide certificates in Islamic studies or education, in separate, standalone departments. The existence of these contradicting systems of education has caused educational dualism, coexistence of 'secular' and religious sciences, which poses dilemma facing the Ummah today. Consequently, the integration of both Naqli and Aqli into an integrated curriculum Is viewed as the best solution to solve this problem. Naqli knowledge is a knowledge that is sourced on the Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad while Aqli knowledge is sourced from the rationale and findings of human thought sin relationship with the progress of human civilization. To analysize the implementation of this integrated knowledge, it will briefly explore the Islamic heritage of higher education and the contemporary models of so called integration made possible, as in the case of International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) and Islamic Science University Malaysia (USIM). For IIUM and USIM there is a great diversity in their curricula, objectives, contents and their educational systems. Despite their glorious attempts to lslamise or integrate their curricula, there is always many rooms for improvement.
