Modern culture has developed so fast and spread all over the world following the development of modern technology which causes human communication becomes easier and the world seems narrower. This condition has caused particular human values, which previously held, becomes universal ones. Another change is that human’s way of thinking becomes more rational and functional. The above changes has given a chalange to the religion of modern people. In the theis of secularism, modern people leave the religion out of public domain, and foster rational aspects. This way of thinking occurs because religion is considered not able to go along science and will inhibit modernity. In fact, such a thesis is a real falsity, as it has been argued by Peter L. Berger. Such falsity does not go in line with Alquran, which appreciates people who think or use their reasoning. Allah swt. appreciates them in surah Āli ‘Imrān : 190, as quoted below:
إِنَّ فِى خَلْقِ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلٰفِ الَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَاٰيٰتٍ لِّأُو۟لِى الْأَلْبٰبِ
Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding (Ulul al-Albāb).
In respond to the verse, religious people are encouraged to face the global era and be able to benefit the chances and challanges of the 21st century. This is because the problems of civilization development does not come from the religion, nut from the people themselves. As a result, 4.0 industrial revolution is not necessarily considered as a threat to religion, and the conversely, the religion is not a threat to 4.0 industrial revolution. Considering this fact, it is necessary to emphasize the important of harmonizing science and technology and religion. Science and technology should be based on religious moral values to avoid destructive effects to human values (dehumanization). Meanwhile, religious teachings should be interpreted and connected to modern context to make it compatible at any time and place.
For Muslims, Industrial Revolution 4.0 is a certainty to be faced on. The characterisics of Industrial Revolution 4.0 that should be understood are: 1) the occurance of disruptiive innovations, i.e. innovations driving the emergence of an unpredictable, disturbing, and destroying new condition, which finally replaces the previously established technology; 2) the fast development of artificial intelligence (AI), i.e. intellinge added to a system managed in scientific context. The intelligence is invented and inserted to a computer to make it able to do many kind of human works; 3) the use of Big Data, which previously stored in high-capacity memory equipment, such as mainframe or server, finally nowadays can be saved easily in a smartphone on internet basis. How high a person, especially Muslim, utilize internet technology shows how deep he is involved in the Industrial Revolution 4.0. If a Muslim has utilized internet technology to make strategic decisions, such as in business, law, education, and uniting Muslims’ potentials, he deserves to be considered as a Muslim who can benefit the opportunities and face the challanges of Industrial Revolution 4.0. The other condition is when a person, especially a Muslim, uses the internet only for dealing with his daily need, such as online transportation and business transaction. Unfortunately, there is a worse condition, i.e. when a person, especially a Muslim, just becomes the object of Industrial Revolution 4.0, in which he becomes more consumtive, easily influenced with bad things, and becoming a part of hoax content spread tthrough social media and other media.
Based on the above conditions, the conference held by Pascasarjana Program of IAIN Purwokerto invites all academicians, lecturers, students, researchers, and whoever having concern to this nation to take part and share ideas in the discussion and the committee will publish the articles in scirntific journals or proceeding. This is one of the ways for academicians to participate Muslims progress in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0.
