The Tawheed Science Module in Biological Education (I-Bio Module) was developed with the aim of producing a teaching aid that integrates the elements of Tawheed with Biological Education. This module was built using steps in the ADDIE Model and was based on several theories such as the Islamization Framework of Science Subjects, Constructivism Theory and BSCS 5E Teaching and Learning Model. This module focused on the Cell Unit contained in the Form 4 Malaysian Biology syllabus. It contained four topics and was organized according to the 5E Inquiry steps, namely Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate. This module contains games, videos, simulations, virtual labs, notes and exercises to facilitate and strengthen students' understanding of each topic. In each chapter, verses from the Qur’an and explanations were inserted to relate the Biolgy topic to the element of Tawheed. This article explains how the steps in 5E Inquiry are used to integrate the elements of Tawheed in the first topic of the module which is Cell Structure and Organization. The usability of this module was tested on 24 pure science students in a religious school. Study participants were selected by purposeful sampling. Students think that this module was interesting and fun, allowed them to be more interested in learning Biology while strengthening the faith and taking ibrah (teaching), strengthening awareness of the truth of the Qur’an and believing in the power of God as creator. It is hoped that this module could help teachers in applying the element of Tawheed in the teaching of Biology and attract students to learn Biology so that Biology learning became more meaningful.
