The research design used is a qualitative approach. The main data collection techniques are through observation, interviews, and literature related to the research theme, namely Fazlur Rahman's thoughts on Islamic education, Islamic education curriculum, and Islamic University. The findings show that Fazlur Rahman's bringing leads to a positive goal, namely developing defensive moral standards and integrating Islamization (Islamic ideology) into the modernization of the existing curriculum to strengthen students' moral standards. More deeply, it aims to prevent negative thoughts and ideas. The Religious Education Curriculum at the Islamic University of Indonesia began to lead to a modern view through the adaptation of digital technology and filling the void of spiritual values with various scientific discourses.

The expected implication is that through the development and change of Islamic religious education curriculum in educational institutions and specifically in higher education in the digital era, it is not only about digital-based learning methods but must have Islamic characteristics to give birth to a younger generation of Muslims who have a positive perspective and behavior. against Islamic modernization. The views of Muslim scholars essentially offer changes to the curriculum with noble goals, it just depends on the policy of the educational institution whether to accept it or not.
