DEVELOPING MUSLIMS ENTREPRENEURS: TACKLING THE PROBLEM OF SPIRITUALITY

Rodrigue Fontaine, Diaa Al-Juneidi

Abstract


This study proposes a method to develop the spiritual intelligence of Muslim entrepreneurs. Since 2010, researchers at the International Islamic University Malaysia have developed processes to increase the spiritual intelligence of students. These processes include individual learning, collective learning, and collective discussion on matters of ‘aqedah (creed). To measure the effectiveness of these interventions, a questionnaire to measure spiritual intelligence was used. A group of students was tested at the beginning of the semester and they were re-tested at the end of the semester. Students were asked to keep a personal diary throughout the semester. The results of these findings are discussed. Research gaps are identified.
