Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to develop an Islamic religiosity measurement which can be applied in many various sectors and fields.

Design/methodology/approach

The religiosity measurement developed by the authors had undergone systematic qualitative and quantitative approaches taking into consideration the expert opinion survey in ensuring the measurement content validity and reliability.

Findings

The study found that Islamic religiosity measurement is multi-dimensional. The dimensions found were beliefs and commitment or practice.

Research limitations/implications

The research limitation of the study is that the research is in its exploratory stages and needs to be replicated and to be tested in different contextual settings.

Originality/value

Abstract

Purpose

The main aim of this paper is to identify whether certain consumers behave irrationally when it comes to select banking products. This paper builds on one of the most significant banking products that is the credit card.

Design/methodology/approach

This is an exploratory research paper. Therefore, only descriptive analysis on the differences between three credit card user groups such as the Islamic credit card users, conventional card users and users who decide to use both credit cards, conventional and Islamic, were presented.

Findings

The demographic and psychographic factors for the three different groups differ. In addition, there are four factors that influence the credit card selection. The factors are insurance/takaful provided by the credit issuers, cost associated with the credit card, the reward points programme offered and the convenience factors. Furthermore, the study found that three of the factors except insurance/takaful are significantly different between three credit card groups.

Research limitations/implications

This paper is limited to the context of Malaysia and the respondents are mostly from the same ethnic. Therefore, it could not be generalised in the context of other countries and further studies comparing different culture or ethnic could benefit and enrich the topic of study.

Practical implications

The Islamic and conventional banks could focus on several factors influencing customers’ selection and could focus to improve certain lacking areas as perceived by the consumers. The ability to increase the perceptions of the consumers regarding their credit cards will enable their products to be chosen in the market.

Originality/value

There was a significant amount of literature discussed in the Islamic banking selection factors. However, little attention being paid to the selection of a specific bank’s product. This study offers a study that looks into the selection of the credit card offered by the banks in respect to the irrational behaviours of the religious consumers in economic activities as compared to the conventional economists. This paper will contribute to the body of existing literature of banking selection.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to identify the performing and non‐performing companies by using multiple discriminant analysis (MDA) and multiple regression and the ratios that could distinguish between the performing and the under‐performing companies.

Design/methodology/approach

First, the study applied the α Jensen technique to classify the Shariah compliance companies into performing and non‐performing. Then, the results from the α Jensen technique with 20 financial ratios are applied to MDA in order to establish models that are used to identify non‐performing and performing companies.

Findings

The growth turnover ratio is the only ratio that could discriminate between the performing and non‐performing companies in the plantation industry.

Research limitations/implications

The paper only investigates a sector in the main board of Bursa Malaysia, which is the plantation industry. Future research may look into the whole Shariah counters in Bursa Malaysia.

Practical implications

The paper could assist investors to evaluate and select an optimal investment portfolio.

Originality/value

The paper applies multivariate analysis which does not depend only on one variable. Using the multivariate analysis it provides an alternative to establish models that discriminate between the performing and non‐performing companies. This paper also investigates only the Shariah compliance counters in Bursa Malaysia.
