The Islamic Religious Education (IRE) curriculum encounters many challenges. One of the challenges is the inferiority of Muslims in developing an IRE curriculum based on Islamic tradition and only relying on the development of educational theories from the West. For this reason, this article examines the development of the IRE curriculum using the makkiyah-madaniyah theory. The purpose is to present an overview of IRE curriculum development using Islamic traditions that are often forgotten. This article uses a qualitative approach with the library research method. After understanding the makkiyah-madaniyah discourse, this article concludes that IRE curriculum development has two models: attention to psychological and sociological aspects. In psychological aspects, IRE educators at the primary level must pay attention to the context of the Makkiyah period, such as the editorial verses of the Qur'an tend to be short and rhyming so that learning and evaluation material should be delivered using a short and rhyming strategy. Emphasis on reward and punishment, aqeeda and moral learning content; and the use of storytelling and illustration (tamtsil) methods should also be a concern in the IRE at this level. Meanwhile, at the secondary level, educators can use the madaniyah model, namely, more extended learning and evaluation material and emphasizing the content of Islamic jurisprudence learning. The sociological aspect applies contextually because of the differences in social conditions between the Prophet Muhammad and us today. The focus of the sociological aspect is divided into two, namely, the sociology of students and the needs of society. Contextual is an approach suitable to be applied in this sociological aspect.
