Education in Indonesia, especially Islamic education, has not been sufficient to form a humanist
personality and is still primordialistic and sectarian in character. This study aims to show the values
of humanistic Islamic education in the thought of Ahmad Syafii Maarif’s. This research is qualitative
research with descriptive analysis using library research, and in-depth interviews. This research
shows that the essence of education in Ahmad Syafii Maarif's perspective is the process of
humanization (a process that liberates and humanizes humans) which directly has an organic link
with the spiritual-transcendental dimension. In Ahmad Syafii Maarif's thought, it is found that the
values of humanistic Islamic education can be summarized in six points, namely: the value of
egalitarianism, the value of tolerance, the value of pluralism, the value of justice, the value of
universal brotherhood, and the value of peace or non-violence. The results of this study are expected
in addition to increasing the wealth of intellectual treasures in the study of the thought of figures in
the field of Islamic education, but also can be considered in developing a more humanistic
educational foundation and practice
