Description :

ISI and Centre of Research for Fiqh Science & Technology - UTM CFirst submitted a proposal to JAKIM to undertake a research to establish ‘Indeks Syariah Malaysia - Budaya’.  Malaysia Syariah Index is an index-developed to measure and assess Malaysia's efforts in achieving the five objectives of Maqasid Al-Syari'ah, namely, in the preservation of religion, life, lineage, intellect and property. 

Study results show that the MSI for the ‘Indeks Syariah Malaysia - Budaya’  sector stood at 68.53. Thus it would be beneficial if the government were to capitalize on the findings and further enhance existing social policies, so that the policies meet the objectives of maqasid syariáh, therefore contributing towards the development of the Muslim Ummah.

The MSI research projects involving cross-discplinary UTM experts, are the initiative of the UTM Centre for Fiqh Research in Science and Technology (CFIRST), with the project grants managed by UTM Institut Sultan Iskandar (ISI).
