Religious and secular studies have been always confronted with each other. Because of this confrontation most of people from Muslim countries are in confusion. People believing and practicing religion are being considered out-dated. On the other hand secular scholars are labelled as liberal thinkers and highly educated. The reason behind this scenario is the education system. Religious connotations have been separated from practical fields of our lives. In case of Islam this separation is not acceptable theoretically but practically education system acknowledges this separation. In order to come out from this confusion there is a need to analyse the Islamic education principles. The main source for Islamic education is the Qur’ān, which is a book revealed by God almighty, which is not a book of chemistry, mathematics or literature, instead it is a book of guidance. Book where the basic principles are discussed for human life. In first revelation the reading and study has been connected to word “Rab”, which means Lord, Sustainer, Cherisher and Master. It means knowledge and education must be based on directions given by the one who had revealed it. Assumptions, doubts and uncertainty has no place in it. This kind of connotation has made the education a part and parcel of human life. Thus Education system must not be contradicting to the principles and ramification set by their main source. This paper is going to extract and discuss the basic principles set by the Qur’ān in the verse 129 and 151 from the chapter Al-Baqarah.
