Mohd Zul Izwan Aliyasak, Mohd Yahya Mohd Hussin, Fidlizan Muhammad, Azila Abdul Razak


Social activities at the mosque are still something new in Malaysia and it has not received a lot of attention. However, there are still a few mosque institutions which have focused on social entrepreneurship activities for increasing the mosque’s income source. The questionnaires were distributed to 52 mosque chairmen and observation was done to see the potential of local social entrepreneurship activities based on factors such as the organisational profile, the mosque demographics, assets, income acceptance, social and finance business activities. The data was analysed quantitatively using descriptive analysis. The findings showed that most mosque institutions were able to raise income from entrepreneurial activities. The social activities conducted can increase the mosque income and bring benefit to the local community especially the Muslim community in general. As such, the study findings can provide inspiration and indication for other mosques to take part in social entrepreneurial activities in order to intensify the mosquepreneur efforts.
