Keywords:Akhlak, physical, spiritual, intelectual and personality, Muslims
Akhlak plays an important role to produce excellent human capital in physical, spiritual, intelectual and personality. Thus, the aim of this study is to review Ibn Hazm's thought about methods of akhlak development. This study uses documentation analysis (content analysis) on his book al-Akhlaq wa asSiyar. The results showed that Ibn Hazm (Adang, 1996)expresses four important methods in the formation of noble akhlak which are: obeying religious teachings, training ourselves with good akhlak, staying away from despicable akhlak and befriend the virtuous. The study also found that Ibn Hazm(Adang, 1996) has expressed an akhlak disease which is often displayed by humans in the acts like cheating, jealousy and being boastful. Lastly, this study is an attempt to explain the origin and significance of akhlak thought by scholars of Islam to be associated with the present and build a better future for Muslims.
