The present work aims at analysing the adoption of eclectic model in the Malaysian education system. The analysis is specifically looked from the angle of Islam and the Muslims. Malaysia has a long history of education system developments, from pre to post independence of the country. From what was initailly traditional, modernity later came to shape the system and practice. The British left many marks and continued to be inherited even after independence. Later, the education philosophy was changed and different approached to education were implemented. Progressing further, symbiotic approach where the normal or conventional academic content were coupled with the Islamic perspective on similar subject matter became part of the system. Eclectic model progresses further and appeared in the form of established higher education system and practice.
