Islamic View of God : Scale Development and Model Testing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

In spite of a growing field of research interest in management with regard to religion in the last few decades, there is a dearth of such studies on Islam. The purpose of the present study therefore is twofold. First, to test the Islamic faith-based model developed by Alshehri, Fotaki and Kauser (2013), and second, to develop and validate a scale that measures a Muslim’s view of God. To enable this, a sample of 427 responses was collected from people in Saudi Arabia. Notably, the model was empirically valid. Moreover, results showed that the newly constructed Muslim’s View of Allah at Work Scale (MVAWS) had adequate psychometric properties in terms of structural validity, internal consistency and correlations, and predicted personal religious practices. To test the validity, conformity factors analysis (CFA) was run. The scale items show a good fit.
