AbstractThe Ta’lim al-Muta’allim book is one of the yellow books taught in Islamic Boarding Schools. Among the IBS, there are still many teachers/ustadz who deem that this book as a good conduct book containing the formulation of standard and final ethics. Meanwhile, a yellow book should be understood contextually, by taking notes the historical, social and politics backgrounds. A yellow book along with all of its contents is not an absolute truth, but also reflecting the culture, requirements and public opinion in its place and era. This paper attempts to see how is the concept ta’dhimu syuyukh in the book positioned correctly, and should the contents of that book be undertsood in this modern era.
