THE CHALLENGES OF INDUSTRIAL ERA 4.0: A QURANIC PERSPECTIVE
This paper discusses the industrial era 4.0 and the various challenges that arise from the perspective of the Quran. The industrial revolution 4.0 was marked by the basis of digitalization in all lines of human life, which then fundamentally changed the way of life, work, and interaction. The concept offered by industry 4.0, of course, is tempting and promising to be applied considering the rapid flow of globalization. As a country with the largest Muslim population in the world, Indonesia in its efforts to enter the industrial era 4.0 is faced with five challenges faced in the industrial era 4.0, namely aspects of knowledge, politics, technology, economy, and social. This is where the need to return to the instructions of the Quran in dealing with the vortex of industrial revolution 4.0. This paper discusses several Quranic perspectives regarding the challenges that arise in the industrial era 4.0, ranging from hoaxes, hate speech, economic inequality to literacy, using the thematic interpretation method. Among the results of this study, the Qur'an provides a very adequate explanation regarding how to deal with changes that occur including the industrial era 4.0, which proves that the Qur'an is relevant for all times and places.
