A balanced approach in education between revealed knowledge and modern science can be enhanced through the integration of naqli and aqli. The integration of both knowledge according to Syed Naquib Al-Attas is known as an integrated educational concept when he first introduced the concept of 'islamization of knowledge’. The important to produce holistic and balanced graduates through the integration of naqli and aqli in knowledge is undeniable to be able to produce Islamic scholars who can become the specialists in solving the problems of ummah. Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) has taken further step to apply naqli and aqli knowledge in the process of teaching and learning at university including in chemistry course. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the expectations among Tamhidi students on the implementation of both naqli and aqli disciplines in the process of teaching and learning in chemistry course. The study was conducted on 106 respondents who are the group of Medicine, Dentistry and Science and Technology students as well at Tamhidi Centre of USIM. This study used quantitative method through questionnaires to collect data. The finding has shown positive perceptions from respondents with mean scores more than four in each item. Majority of respondents realized the need of the integration of naqli and aqli knowledge in teaching and learning. They were agreed that this effort should be continued for other subjects in Tamhidi Centre. In addition, majority respondents also expect to be an example in the practice of the integration of naqli and aqli knowledge.
