In the midst of the development and rapidity of technology and communication in society, the press has a strategic position as a channel for channeling information to the public capable of shaping, educating and reporting and entertaining the public so that people can find out about various developments in their environment and within the State. The objective of the article is to portray a comprehensive picture of how press is viewed through Islamic perspective. The Islamic press is a form of contemporary Islamic preaching and plays a very important role in shaping a person's character or personality. In principle, the task of the Islamic press is to defend the weak, to speak out for the voiceless. The position and portion of the Islamic press have been studied since the beginning as a medium of information for education, entertainment and others. Apart from that, it is added with additional functions which may not be able to be replaced by other general press institutions, namely the function of education both religiously, publicly and so on so that it affects the formation of a person's character.
