Abstract

Out-of-wedlock pregnancy among adolescents has become a social issue in today's global society. In Malaysia, statistics (Department of National Statistics of Malaysia) show that in the years 2000-2008, there were 257,000 births registered without father. In the context of the Muslim community in Malaysia, pregnancy outside of legal marriage is something contrary to the norms, moral values, culture and religion of society. Such pregnant adolescents would be placed in a shelter and rehabilitation centre run by the government or an NGO. The aim is to give protection, moral and spiritual support, so that the adolescents may be psychologically restored and they would not repeat the same mistake after the intervention. The purpose of this study is to examine the syllabus of the spiritual education module that has been implemented by a shelter home, the Harapan Secondary School Rehabilitation Centre. An Islamic Practice Instrument (IPIfariza) Questionnaire was administered to 38 pregnant adolescents at the rehabilitation centre which conducted this spiritual education module. Data was analyzed to assess the spiritual level of adolescents after undergoing the intervention process through learning and training in this module. The results of this study show that the level of spirituality among adolescents improved in three categories namely faith, worship and morality. The study also finds that adolescents' knowledge relating to religious and moral values also increased. Overall, the study finds that the spiritual education module has a positive impact on the adolescents’ psychology and spirituality.
