Indonesia is home to a large number of Islamic education institutions providing Quranic teaching and assisting in memorizing it, ranging from Islamic boarding school (pesantren) to Institute of Quranic sciences where the Quran has been studied traditionally. What is widely unknown, however, some Muslims also use the Internet to facilitate Quranic teaching and memorization of it. It is evident that globalization and modernization have shifted the way how Muslims interact with their sacred texts. The Quran is studied technically everywhere and anytime. Does the digital tool diminish the sacred of the Quran? This study takes a case study of online Quranic house of Qaaf in providing online learning and helping to memorize of the Quran. This study highlights the changing attitude of Muslims toward the Quran. It explores the influence of globalization and modernization to the heart of Islamic teaching.
