Shaykh Mu½ammad Abduh (1849-1905), according to A.L. Tibawi, is the true author of the philosophy of modernism in education as in theology and other fields.Indeed, it is this philosophical aspect that has influenced a great number of contemporary Muslim modernists at one ideological level or another up to our present day. In his study of Abduh's thought, Osman Amin concludes that the educational and ethical aspect of Abduh's modernism explains the pervasive influence this Egyptian reformer has had in some parts of the Muslim world. While the importance of his educational thought has been acknowledged, the subject, as far as we know, remains insufficiently explored. It is our intention in this paper to provide the framework of an Islamic philosophy of education as percieved by Shaykh Mu½ammad Abduh in his vast writings on education. For, the failure to see the framework of Abduh's vision of Islamic philosophy of education has led to an incomplete understanding of the man and his educational ideas.
