Ar-Rahnu functions as an alternative to micro credit instrument for short term collateralized borrowing. It was first introduced in January 1992 by the Muasasah Gadaian Islam Terengganu (MGIT) and later followed by others. However, the effectiveness of such Islamic micro finance institutions was still arguable. For this reason, the Islamic community turns to illegal money lender or Ah-Long whenever they need to borrow money. This issue could lead Ar-Rahnu to suffer loss and trust of customers. This research, therefore, was study the factors that could lead Ar-Rahnu to reach and restore its effectiveness in Islamic micro finance. This study collected data from 100 respondents residing in Selangor. Using a smartPLS as a tool for the analysis, it was observed that availability of information and also accessibility to the locations that provide Ar-Rahnu system were the key drivers for customers to utilize Ar-Rahnu services. These aspects could be used by policy makers in the planning for Ar-Rahnu establishments in the future.

In Malaysia, consumers are lacking in the awareness about green products and facilities, meanwhile numerous organizations have implemented green campaigns. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to explore the green marketing awareness among hotel guests in Malaysia. Additionally, this research identified key determinants for the awareness among hotel customers. The research collected data from 146 local and international tourists staying in three hotels that employed green marketing strategies. To analyze the data, we employed SEM-PLS by utilizing the SmartPLS3 software. The results indicated that customers have moderate awareness about green marketing in the hotel industry. Furthermore, green marketing awareness were statistically, significantly linked to the products and prices offered by the hotels, while the promotions and location of the hotels were not significant predictors. The results have an implication for hotel industry in which they need to pay more attention toward the products offered for their guests to support the success of their marketing strategies. The products also need to be supported by a competitive price offered to ensure the increase of visitors in the hotels.

Astri Yulia1, Nor Azilah Husin2, Amirul Syafiq Mohd Ghazali3 and Nurul Jannah Mohd Jalil4

2016 The Malaysian government started to introduce goods and service tax (GST) in April 2015 as an initiative to enhance capability, effectiveness, and transparency of tax management.

Read More

However, would the taxpayers, particularly the working citizens, be satisfied with the implementation? Would they understand the GST legislation? And would the computation of GST be burdensome to them? This study attempts to answer the above research questions by looking at Malaysian working citizens’ perspectives on the matter. The participants of the study were the employees who work in firms that process the GST transactions. We investigated the positive and negative reactions towards GST implementation among the working citizens. Importantly, we evaluated the influence of income on their perceptions. To analyze the data, MANOVA was employed to compare the employees based on their income level. The results presented that the low-income group was significantly different from the higher-income groups regarding their positive reactions as well as the negative reactions. It was concluded that GST had the most effect on the low-income group of employees. This preliminary, exploratory study can shed some lights into investigating more complex issues on GST.

Nor Azah Jahari 1, Al-Hasan Al-Aidaros2

 

2016 Nowadays, people are not only buying things in a traditional way but the advancement of technology has evolved and people buy products through online transaction. In Malaysia, the phenomenon of buying through online dropship agent becomes one of the popular ways of buying products.

Read More

However, questions arise whether the transaction is in accordance to shariah (islamic law) or the other way around. In practice, the dropship transaction uses agent as the seller of the product; where in fact the agent does not hold the product. The two important issues raised are the transaction itself whether it is considered as lawful or not; and the issue of uncertainty (gharar). This study aims to explain the online dropship transaction from an islamic perspective. Among the topics addressed in this paper are gharar issues, transaction between the dropship agent, customer, and postage issues.

Nor Azilah Husin1 ,Amirul Syafiq Mohd Ghazali2 , Firdaus Afandi Mohd Roslan3 and Maryam Mardhiah Mohd Shamsul Bahrain4

2015 With increase in awareness for implementation of Sharia-approved healthcare products, modern lifestyle and rising income levels, the demand for Halal medicines also soared in recent times.

Read More

Many past research have explored on the consumers and little known on doctors who prescribe the patients on halal medicine. The purpose of this study is to investigate the awareness of halal medicine among doctors and its relationship with the following endogenous variables: attitude, perception, and belief of halal information. Using Smart PLS 2.0 as the statistical tool, results showed that only belief on halal information has a significant relationship with doctors’ awareness on halal medication. There were no significant relationships found between perception and awareness as well as attitude and awareness. This finding indicates that doctors really do their work well; they do not simply perceive in prescribing medicine to their patients.

25 Multinomial Logistic Regression Modelling of Obesity and Overweight among Primary School Students in a Rural Area of Negeri Sembilan

Amirul Syafiq Mohd Ghazali1, Zalila Ali2, Norlida Mohd Noor3 and Adam Baharum4

2015 Multinomial logistic regression is widely used to model the outcomes of a polytomous response variable, a categorical dependent variable with more than two categories. The model assumes that the conditional mean of the dependent categorical variables is the logistic function of an affine combination of predictor variables.

Read More

Its procedure gives a number of logistic regression models that make specific comparisons of the response categories. When there are q categories of the response variable, the model consists of q-1 logit equations which are fitted simultaneously. The model is validated by variable selection procedures, tests of regression coefficients, a significant test of the overall model, goodness-of-fit measures, and validation of predicted probabilities using odds ratio. This study used the multinomial logistic regression model to investigate obesity and overweight among primary school students in a rural area on the basis of their demographic profiles, lifestyles and on the diet and food intake. The results indicated that obesity and overweight of students are related to gender, religion, sleep duration, time spent on electronic games, breakfast intake in a week, with whom meals are taken, protein intake, and also, the interaction between breakfast intake in a week with sleep duration, and the interaction between gender and protein intake.
