This study focuses at how to integrate Islamic values into English language learning in the digital era. This study conducts literature reviews using a number of sources, including papers and research journals from prior and recent relevant studies. This study reveals that the integration of Islamic values occurs in all phases of learning. The challenge in integrating Islamic values are not only from the teachers, but from students and parents.
