Abstract

The family institution is the earliest institution responsible in shaping the personality and character of each family member. Correspondingly, noble values are important aspects in the formation of a harmonious family. However, today these noble values are less practiced within the families, causing for the emergence of various family conflicts. Hence, the practice of positive values could influence and encourage mankind in leading a better life, as demanded by Islam. Among the noble values that are able to create an atmosphere of harmony in the family are mutual respect, mutual help, being affectionate and loving, being responsible, and also being tolerant and trustworthy. This article aims to discuss the measures in creating a harmonious family based on the practice of noble values as taught by Islam. The design of this study is quantitative, in the form of a survey. This study used the questionnaire instrument which were distributed to 171 respondents who participated in the Bicara Sakinah (Talk on Harmony) program, organized by the Malaysian Consultative Council of Muslim Women (Majlis Perundingan Wanita Islam Malaysia (MPWIM)), Islamic Da’wah Foundation Malaysia (Yayasan Dakwah Islam Malaysia (YADIM)) at the Islamic Centre (Pusat Islam), Kuala Lumpur. Research data were analyzed descriptively using the frequency, percentage and mean score using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) computer software version 23. The findings show that the measures in forming a harmonious family based on the noble values from the aspect of religious demands is at a moderate level (mean=3.76), from the aspect of communication (mean=4.33), value of responsibility (mean=4.54), and the value of affection (mean=4.33). Overall, the findings indicate that most respondents have agreed and adopted the measures in creating a harmonious family based on the noble values of family life. Noble values that are applied in family life could become a fortress of strength in producing good and useful generation. Therefore, each individual in the family needs to strive and help each other in developing a harmonious family which is based on the noble values as molded by Islam, based on the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah.
