People with mental retardation, who have long been seen as having limited abilities, are actually able to memorize the Qur’an well and recite verses of the Qur’an fluently. This phenomenon is interesting to reveal further, especially in terms of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in order to find out the factors that influence it. This qualitative research is a limited exploration (bounded system) to one case. In-depth data mining through various sources of information was carried out through observation and in-dept interviews. This research found that the intrinsic motivation aspects of subjects with mental retardation met the indicators of ideals and hopes, but did not meet the interest indicators and intrinsic motivation aspects. Meanwhile, extrinsic motivation in the subject meets the indicators: reward, sanctions, competition, and environment. This research also identified the existence of factors that encourage and inhibit motivation. Driving factors: parental support, rote repetition method, competition, enjoyment of memorizing, modeling and motivating stories. Inhibiting factors: intelligence, emotions, and dependence on other people. The entire inhibiting factor is a side that is difficult to separate from people with mental retardation. This research will contribute to understanding how extrinsic motivation greatly influences the development of people with mental retardation and increases driving factors, as well as reducing inhibiting factors in the positive development of people with mental retardation. People with mental retardation can also achieve with the support of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.
