Corporate Waqf, Intention to Contribute in Corporate Waqf, Theory of Planned Behaviour


Corporate waqf has contributed a great change into the waqf system as a whole and been generally accepted as a way of waqf practice. However, the literature that discusses about the factors influencing people to contribute or involve in this practice is very limited. Prior to action, intention is taken place. Therefore, this study aims to examine the factors influencing people’s intention to contribute in corporate waqf, particularly to the employees of Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (MAIWP), based on the theory of planned behaviour (TPB). A set of a questionnaire was constructed in order to measure the validity of the theory towards people’s intention in contributing for corporate waqf. The result of this study found that attitude, subjective norm and perceived behavioural control were significantly related to intention to contribute in corporate waqf among people.
