This research investigates the importance of pedagogical-based multicultural education in social life, particularly in Islam. A multicultural study is not a new thing, but it has limited implementation. Based on the theory of H.A.R Tilaar about multicultural education, it has inherently existed since this Indonesian nation existed. The state philosophy of the Republic of Indonesia is unity in diversity (Bhinneka Tunggal Ika), cooperation helping each other, and respect one another. It can be seen from the chronological portrait of this nation that there are various foreign tribes and continues to acculturate with the indigenous people. Multicultural education gives hope in dealing with various turmoil which happened recently. This study employed qualitative research. The analysis method and the source were taken from the literature study. Thus, the research sources were taken from literature by using a qualitative approach. Hence, the researcher explored the number of data, both primary and secondary data. They used concrete steps, such as reading and examining the primary data in-depth, such as research results, journals, thesis, or dissertations related to multicultural and Islamic education. Consequently, multicultural education is a necessity in educational institutions.
