Abstract Science and religion are both tools for searching the truth, even though they cannot be categorized as something similar. Islam as a religion, is certainly one of the tools for humans to seek the truth. In Islamic studies, there are three models of thinking to determine the location of the authority of truth, which later by al-Jabiri is matched with the epistemological model popular in Islamic studies, one of which is the epistemology of bayani. Based on this bayani epistemology that to find a truth in Islamic studies, it must refer to the text. The text which is the main source of truth in Islamic studies is the Qur'an and hadith. Qur'an and hadith are arranged in Arabic. From here it is clear that there is an important role or position in Arabic science in Islamic studies. Based on the study by the author that the position of Arabic language science in Islamic studies is as a tool to find the truth or study the contents contained in the Qur'an and the Sunnah which are sources of truth in Islamic studies and the main sources of Islamic teachings. So that the contents of the Qur'an and the Sunnah can be understood by the followers of Islam (Muslim) appropriately and avoid mistakes in the meaning of its contents.  Keywords: Arabic Language Science, Islamic Studies
