    Abstract:
    Textbooks are the only source of information to pupils in Pakistani classrooms and they rely on these textbooks to find accurate and authentic information. English and Urdu Textbooks in Pakistan are to teach pupils language and to communicate to them a set of values (Islamic) as conceptualized by the state in its curriculum documents. This study chose texts from English and Urdu textbooks that were related, directly or indirectly, with Islamic values. The qualitative content analysis method was used to analyze the selected stories against the criteria derived from the curriculum documents, textbooks and earlier studies. This study found the values portrayed through Islamic lenses and was set in family-focused settings. The characters in the stories also communicated to pupils the importance of family in Islam and what value to practice in an Islamic family and society.
