Elementary Fardhu Ain’ education is an important element in moulding a Muslim’s personality because it motives the mind, emotions, wishes and actions of a person. If this element is truly assimilated into the soul, it would help develop appropriate behaviour according to the tenets of Islam. In the Malaysian education system, Elementary Fardhu Ain’ education is a priority and is specifically mentioned in the National and Islamic Education Philosophies. It is also the basis for formulating other aspects such as worship, good conduct etc. with the hope that it would help form appropriate adolescent behaviour in PPR areas and help them become faithful Malaysians with noble values. An analysis of literature reviews related to behaviour indicated that Elementary Fardhu Ain’ has a significant relationship with adolescent behaviour formation in PPR areas. A strong Elementary Fardhu Ain’ would help adolescents attain an Islamic personality and vastly improve their level of understanding and realization. The aim of this paper was to examine the importance of Elementary Fardhu Ain’ in forming appropriate adolescent behaviour based on sources such as the al-Quran and al-Hadith, as well as views and studies by Islamic scholars related to this subject. It was hoped that this paper would attract the attention of various parties, especially those directly involved in behavioural and moral education for adolescents in PPR areas, such as school administrators, Islamic education teachers, school counsellors, teachers and society, so that appropriate steps could be taken to arrange programs. These programs should be able to consolidate the understanding of Elementary Fardhu Ain’ by adolescents, either by implementing joint and integrated programs or by creating continuous monitoring and evaluation so that behavioural modifications through Elementary Fardhu Ain’ education is done efficiently and comprehensively on all adolescents in the PPR area.
