The purpose of this study is to investigate the phenomenological aspects of religious value development in the children of Muslim migrant worker households on Lombok Island and determine the tactics they employ to maintain their religious identity. This study employed a descriptive qualitative research method based on observations and interviews. This study's fundamental information was derived from primary data collected through in-depth interviews with several children (aged 4 to 10 years) from Muslim migrants' households. The findings emphasized the complex link between religious principles, cultural identity, and societal elements in the development of Muslim children. Meanwhile, this study will help us better understand the complex connection between migration, religion, and cultural identity and provide valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities that migrant families face when keeping their religious beliefs.
