Abstract

The State Islamic Religious Council (SIRC) is to advise the Sultan on all questions concerning Islam in the state. In this study, we raise three research questions – how are the works’ of (SIRC) organised? who are the people that become board member of SIRC? and does the organisational governance structure follow the best practices? Hence, the objective of this study is to examine the involvement of stakeholders in preserving their interest in SIRC. By examining the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, selected state law and selected web of SIRC, the results of this study are: first, the constitution provides the separation of power for each layer of government in relation to revenues; second, the hierarchy within SIRC has identified each job, its function and where it reports to within SIRC; and third; the sample of SIRC has adopted differently the organisational structure.
