Abstract

The purpose of Islamic education is to impart knowledge of Islamic teachings for students to practise in their daily lives. Islamic Education is a compulsory course for all Polytechnic students in Malaysia. However, there has not been any study on its effectiveness on the Islamic practice of students in their daily lives. Hence, this research is to measure the effectiveness of implementing this course on the Islamic practice among students of one of the polytechnics in Malaysia, Ungku Omar Polytechnic (PUO), Ipoh, Malaysia. The purpose of this research is to study the level of Islamic practice among students in terms of aqidah (belief), ibadah (worship) and akhlak (moral/ character). This research is a study survey. The research instrument used to measure the level of Islamic practice among Muslim students is the Islamic Practice Instrument (IPI-Fariza). 60 male and 40 female students are selected as research respondents. Data obtained through questionnaire forms is analysed using SPSS software and research findings are explained using descriptive statistics displayed in mean scores. The Alpha Cronbach reliability value for the whole of the question items in the questionnaire is high, that is, 0.923. Research outcome shows that the level of Islamic practice among respondents is high in all aspects, that is aqidah 100.0 percent, ibadah 94.0 percent and akhlak 96.0 percent. In conclusion, overall research findings show that the level of Islamic practice among students in PUO is high. This shows that the Islamic Education course taught has a favourable effect on Islamic practice among students of Ungku Omar Polytechnic (PUO), Ipoh, Malaysia.
