Schools, as formal education institutions, are supposed to be a pleasant place and able to facilitate the learning process. However, in reality, it seems that learning difficulties still occur among students. The purpose of this study is to describe alternative actions in overcoming learning difficulties. This study uses a qualitative approach and a case study method. The researchers acted as the main instrument. Interviews and documentation studies were employed as data collection techniques. After the data was collected, the researchers used descriptive data analysis techniques. Based on the results of the study, several learning difficulties that were experienced by the students occurred due to several factors, namely lack of motivation in learning, fluctuating enthusiasm, family background, lack of interest in one subject that often led to students absent from school, the condition of the class that is not conducive, and student’s health history of certain diseases. Basically, every learning difficulty experienced by the students can be overcome through Islamic guidance and counseling such as providing assistance in the form of guidance and advising to individuals who are facing problems and to those who are not to develop their potentials, so that they are always in harmony with the Islamic provisions and instructions. Islamic guidance and counseling methods include Qur'anic counseling, Ṣalat therapy, habituation of dhikr, and other good deeds, through the approach of Sufism. As for the strategy in approaching students who have learning difficulties is done in a subtle way and easy to understand by using three methods namely al-hikmah, maui’ẓah hasanah, and mujādalah. The implication is that the Islamic guidance and counseling are very important to be learned, pondered, understood, developed, and implemented in overcoming learning difficulties.
