Islamic education in Malaysia in general can be approached from two different angles:Modern and traditional. The traditional system is more on Madrasah type also known as the pondok system. However, there are differences between Madrasah or pondok system with the modern one. One of the obvious aspects is that the Madrasah still practices reading the book 9kitab) from cover to cover, however, it is hard to find the same reading method in the modern system. Until now, there is no single agreement among scholars with regard to the date of first madarsah built in Malaysia. Thus, it is interesting to note that the Madrasah contributed in the strive for independence. This paper attempts to explore the role and contribution of Madrasah towards Islamic education in Malaysia, with specifically examines the system, challenges, and the role of the teachers.
