Abstract: 
This article explores and compares salient characteristics and educational influences of humanism in both Islam and Confucianism. It is argued that the humanist tradition in both belief systems upholds the development and transforming ability of human beings. A common aim of education is to develop God/Way-conscious and virtuous individuals who fulfil their calling on earth by achieving perfection. Rather than advocating textual transmission, didacticism and rote-memorisation, the humanist tradition in both Islam and
Confucianism supports a broad-based curriculum and promote active learning engaging pedagogies.
