The purpose of this work is to argue for the inclusion of doing philosophy into the curriculum of Islamic education. The method of deductive logic is employed in the argument to serve this purpose. The argument is in the form of a syllogism with the premises that ‘philosophy enhances good thinking’ and ‘good thinking is valuable’, therefore, the logical conclusion that philosophy is valuable. In order to prove the soundness of the argument in terms of truth value, the authors first clarify the meaning of good thinking which is multi-dimensional - critical, creative, ethical, and spiritual thinking. Values of good thinking are elucidated demonstrate that it is valuable. Second, the authors to analyze what philosophizing or doing philosophy entails, that it requires the use of critical, creative, ethical and spiritual thinking skills. From this analysis, the authors found that doing philosophy is in fact applying good thinking to understand and make judgement in metaphysics, sematic worldview and epistemology, and ethics in order to develop a systematic to achieve wisdom, Evidences from empirical investigations and scholarly view of Islamic and Western philosophers are presented to substantiate both premises of the syllogism. Thus, the logical consequence of the conclusion that philosophy and doing philosophy ought to be included of Islamic education. The book ok concludes wish recommendations toward achieving this goal.
