A number of thinkers and scholars of education, especially in the West, the show anxiety and disillusionment with the modern education system and the results, as seen in a number of articles and scientific meetings held in several places. They feel the lack of correlation between the modern and the view of its findings to the Supreme Creator, and the recognition that there is life beyond this life as something that is missing in terms of knowledge of modern people of today. Departing from the above mindset, this article discussed the importance of building scientific view, which is the basis for the establishment of an Islamic university established centers of excellences, as building an integrated and inter-connectivity between the various elements, both in the process of excavation and branches. Inter-connectivity paradigm assumes that to understand the complexity of the phenomena encountered and lived the life of man, every building of any science, whether science of religion (including Islam and other religions), social sciences, humanities, and natural can’t stand alone. Cooperation, mutual scolds address, mutual need, mutual correction and the interconnectedness between scientific disciplines will be able to help people understand the complexities of life they lived and solve problems that it faces. For an Islamic university, inter-connectivity is an epistemological paradigm is the answer or response to difficulties experienced during this, which is inherited and passed on for centuries in the dichotomy of Islamic civilization on the religious sciences and science. Inter-connectivity paradigm, the axiological, about offering a world view of human religion and a new scientists, more open, able to open up dialogue and cooperation, transparent, publicly accountable and forward-looking. Ontologically, the relationship between various academic disciplines become more open and fluid, although the blocks and borders between supporters of scientific culture is rooted in religious texts (Hadlarah al-Nash), and the culture of science supporting the empirical historical knowledge of factual social sciences and natural sciences (Hadlarah al-Ilm) and philosophical culture of ethical scientific support (Hadlarah al-Falsafah) could still exist. As the container (agent) for the development of sciences, Islamic universities can realize the cosmopolitan Islamic civilization. Therefore, the Islamic university should be able to enforce a dominant element of cosmopolitanism of Islamic civilization, such as the loss of ethnic boundaries, the strength of the plurality of cultural and political heterogeneity. Islamic cosmopolitanism has been a historical reality that paved the way for the formation of human heritage that isn’t constrained by narrow nationalist views and parochialism. In the perspective of science, Islamic cosmopolitanism facilitates the struggle and the struggle of Islamic science that isn’t uncommon to find a progressive and versatile process of dialogue that will bring up the dialectical antithesis to the thesis of the previous establishment. It can be concluded, that the cosmopolitanism of the Islamic civilization will be achieved or are on point as far as the optimal balance between the two spectra are mutually influence the success of a civilization, namely the normative tendencies of Muslim thought and freedom of all citizens (including those with non-Muslims). A new agenda can be developed from now to show again the universality of the teachings of Islam and cosmopolitanism of Islamic civilization in the future.
