Religion is one of the important factors that affect the human life. The concept of religion has a significant place within the scope of social studies education. Religion is a concept closely related to citizenship and value educations. As for the studies conducted in the field of social studies in Turkey, there have been few studies on Islam. The reason is that curriculum of social studies do not cover Islam sufficiently. However, religious elements are emphasized in the social studies course in many countries including the US. Within this context, the aim of this research is to evaluate the relationship between social studies and Islam. First, the concepts of social studies and Islam were addressed, and then mutual concepts and values of social studies and Islam were discussed.
