|Abstract:||This paper is a preliminary study on the integration of Naqli (revealed) and Aqli (non- revealed) knowledge in English for Professionals course in Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia USIM. English for Professionals course is an English for Occupational Purposes (EOP) course that has been made a compulsory subject for all FPQS, FKP, FSU (Fiqh and Fatwa major), and FSK undergraduates since 2015. As an institution of higher learning promoting the integration of Naqli (revealed) and Aqli (non-revealed) knowledge, there is growing need for this English for Professionals course to produce future Muslim professionals imbued with Islamic etiquettes whose life and work are based on the principles of Islamic worldview as prescribed by in the Quran and the Sunnah. This paper, thus, revisits the concept of integration of Naqli and Aqli knowledge and its significance in reforming education in general. This paper also evaluates the current English for Professionals course and highlights what remains as the uphill tasks in the formation of the course curriculum design, material development and instructional design as well as pedagogy to support such noble aspiration. At the end, the paper discusses some possible implications and limitations of the efforts and offers some distinctive suggestions on areas for further research.|
