This research aims is take a picture of education in Islamic boarding schools, and its prospects for the future of students after the birth of Law (UU) Number 18 of 2019 concerning about Pesantren. Many people imagine, what will pesantren education be like in the future? This question arises because in the law there is a new scheme regarding the implementation of education in Islamic boarding schools, a scheme that is no longer based on Law Number 20 of 2003 concerning the National Education System (UU Sisdiknas) and Law Number 12 of 2012 concerning Higher Education. This research method uses a qualitative approach. Data collection through the literature method (search library) through books, journals and articles that support the explanation of the application of the Pesantren and its future. The result showed that  History has noted that pesantren is the most successful institution in producing graduates to survive in any situation. The experience of not being recognized by the government in the past did not make the alumni sink. They can still exist with their religious knowledge to provide benefits to their environment, become priests of prayer, teach the Koran, become religious leaders in their respective environments, and become callers of harmony in life. This is the big capital of Islamic boarding schools that other educational institutions do not have. The emergence of this pesantren law must be interpreted as a blessing to return to familiarity with the yellow book as the basis for santri learning. The flocking of institutions that do not teach the yellow book, but want to be called a pesantren is proof that the pesantren and its yellow book have their own charm and appeal in the the public.
