Abstract

This study reports a study on the influence of faith-based behaviour on the religious behaviour delinquency. Faith-based behavior consists of 6 pillars of faith: belief in Allah, prophets, angels, scriptures, life after death and divine decree. According, to As-Syatibi delinquent behaviour is divided into 5 categories: delinquency in religion, life, mind, heredity and property. This classification is based on the basic human needs (dharuriyat) from the aspect of maqosid syariah. Faith-based behavior is expected to abstain one from indulging in delinquent behaviour from religious point of view. Research questionnaires were developed consisting of items on ritual behaviour and delinquent behaviour forms. About 600 respondents from eastern part of peninsular Malaysia participated in the study through the multi-stage stratified sampling method. Data were analysed using path analysis. Results indicated that belief in Allah (β = -0.415) followed by belief in scriptures (β = 0.171) significantly influence all five forms of delinquent behaviour. This suggests that prayer is the most influential preventive measure in abstaining one from delinquent behaviour.
