This study discusses the teaching and learning of Sirah using a method of game among gifted students at Pusat PERMATApintarTM Negara, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. Previous studies suggest that learning Sirah through the game method is beneficial in teaching and learning of Sirah at school level. However, recent studies in Malaysia found that many teachers have not emphasized this approach in teaching and learning. The objective of the present study is to find out students’ perceptions towards the use of game method in learning Sirah. In order to achieve the purpose of this study, a survey study using a set of questionnaire was conducted. The respondents involved were 79 Form Three and Form four students of Kolej PERMATApintarTM, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia who took the Islamic Education subject.

The results of the study proved that teaching and learning of Sirah using the game method helps students to remember the facts easily, improve understanding on the Sirah topics studied, increase students’ focus, increase students’ motivation, increase students’ interest.
