Since Indonesia gained its independence in 1945, several Indonesian scholars have attempted to build and re-develop various aspects of developmental fields including education, economy and society. In developing a country with the world's largest Muslim-majority population, one of their main concern is the revival of Islamic thought at Islamic higher institutions in Indonesia. This revival of thought involves re-interpreting important elements of Islamic thought influenced by modem Western thought that is secular. Indeed, this way of thought is wrong. This paper elaborates the significant roles of Mohammad Rasjidi's thoughts and contributions in correcting and re-affirming the fundamental principles of Islam, specifically concerning the nature of human reason, the nature of scientific progress, and of social fact, all of which conform with the Worldview of Islam. Mohammad Rasjidi's thoughts and contributions deserve to be studied, that because of his educational background. He had spent his life to study in Islamic and Western countries. This became a capital for him in criticizing the notion of secularism that intefered Islamic thought, especially in Islamic higher educational institutions in Indonesia.
