Abstract

The spiritual aspect is a matter which students need to pay attention to, regardless of which studies or level they are in. Neglect of this aspect may cause students to lose sight of their learning objectives and lack of motivation. Therefore, this research is carried out to study the forms of spiritual exercise practiced by students of the Faculty of Islamic Studies (FPI), National University of Malaysia (UKM) to identify the forms of spiritual exercise which in the respondents' view can increase student learning motivation and to analyze the relation between spiritual practice and student academic achievement. Through random sampling, a total of 291 students from the 2nd and 3rd year undergraduates are selected. Data collected from questionnaires is analyzed using descriptive statistics. The results of this study show some forms of spiritual exercise related to learning practiced by FPI students. This research also finds some forms of spiritual exercise which respondents admit have helped in improving their learning motivation and there is a significant relation between student spiritual practice and academic achievement (r = 0. 262; p<0.01).
