The interface of literature and ELT has been a global trend. One of the integral issues is selecting the relevant literary texts for EFL calssroom activities. the selection is greatly influenced by the context, learners and educational setting where the instruction takes place. Islamic Higher Education is a particular setting in Indonesia that seeks to integrate Islamic values into all disciplines including ELT. The use of literature is believed to be an effective way to support such effort. It povides the students with both liguistic aspects of English language and universal Islamic values which are not yet adequately represented by the existing teaching materials in the field of ELT. In order to meet the Islamic university's need, I intend to utilize the so-termed Islamic literature and religious literature to develop a literature-based English language teaching. The basic assumption of this paper is that the use of Islamic literature fits the need of EFL classroom held by Islamic higher education in Indonesia. Carefully selected literary texts drawn from a wide range which are supported by suitable lesson plans will equip the students with language usage, language use, Islamic values, and the vision of unity within diversity. Besides, the students of English Department at Islamic university would learn meanigfully when the teaching model, including the teaching material, provides them with more than just English.
