During the Covid-19 epidemic, distance learning systems gained widespread acceptance as a viable alternative to traditional educational services. Over ten million madrasah-based students participated in the Learning From Home (BDR) program with the bare minimum requirements for the implementation of inclusive religious education through the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia's circular No. 4 of 2020 and the Ministry of Religion of the Republic of Indonesia. This exhaustive literature analysis dives into the philosophical basis of distance education. It provides context and reason for a religious education based on madrasas. This study examines remote learning implementation at madrasah institutions from a policy and practical standpoint and makes recommendations for appropriate programs. The findings of this study contribute to the creation of an inclusive and responsive road map for religious education in Indonesia. The subsequent researcher may focus exclusively on program development.
