Abstract

Measurement in Islamic Religion has become the most critical focus in the Psychology of Religion. There are various attempts to measure the religion of Islam from multiple dimensions including beliefs, practices, values and attitudes. We systematically review the growing empirical measures in Islam. Initial efforts started in 1997 and began to receive serious attention by regardless of Muslim or non-Muslim researchers. There are 20 instruments that have been built to be used in the Islamic Religion study. Each instrument has reported adequate internal reliability but only a few instruments have evidenced content validity, construct validity and criterion validity. We also suggest direction for research in this area that empirically based on grounded Islam Theory.
