Like most Christian scholars, Margoliouth claimed that only Biblical prophets wrought a number of miracles to validate their truth, and Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) possessed no miracle including the Qur’an. To justify his claim, Margoliouth asserted that even the Qur’an clearly points out that the Prophet (p.b.u.h) was never given any miracle, and hence, Muslims’ claims that he performed many physical miracles were just inaccurate and groundless. In attempt to evaluate the misrepresented claims of Margoliouth, this paper examines his main evidences and observations. At the same time, it deliberates a critical investigation of historical Islamic data about the miracles of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) in order to point out the validity of those miracles. Based on the historical facts, it can be justifiably claimed that Margoliouth’s rejection of Prophet’s miracles was part of his misrepresentation of Islam.</p> Akilu Muhammad Aliu Adibah Abdul Rahim ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-08-02 2018-08-02 24 1 10 The Role of Zakat and Success Factor for Muallaf Conditions: An Analysis in Selangor, Malaysia http://uijournal.usim.edu.my/index.php/uij/article/view/58 <p>In Selangor, zakat assistance to the new converts begins from the first day they become Muslims. The new Muslim would be immediately helped with MYR 500.00 monthly allowance for five years until they manage to act in accordance with Allah’s orders and to perform worshipping (<em>Mukallaf</em>). The main problem statement is, how the effectiveness of zakat distribution among muallaf was?. Thus, this article presents structural equation models for effectiveness of zakat distribution among muallaf in Selangor. The formation of the models consists of the condition of the muallaf and success factors as well as the income before and after zakat distribution towards the muallaf, which are the observed variable. This specification will able to examine the predictors of differences between income without zakat and income with zakat. The Muallaf really need and seek for help from the Muslim especially in Muslim country in terms of economic strength and support. Thus, developmental programs are crucial in order to support them physically and mentally. An effective program can be an instrument to equip them with negative perception that they received after becoming a Muslim. The main objective of this article is to explore the effectiveness of muallaf development programs organized in Selangor, this article uses the crosstabs methods based on several critical success factors. The method been use in this research is mix method by conducted through in-depth interviews with selected Muallaf from a variety of cultural backgrounds, living in the area of Selangor, Malaysia. Then the next phase, this article conducted set of survey questionnaires among 80 respondents to confirm the findings.

It has since then become a means for any government to improve its governance and administration and was similarly used by the oppositions in certain countries to bring their government into accountability. The aim of this paper is to explore and analyze the Islamic foundation principles and values underpinning the field of governance in an attempt to construct a new systemic articulation of ‘Islamic governance’. This discursive and abstract, rather than being an empirical exercise, assumes to produce a ‘good governance’ framework within its own formulation through a value-shaped dynamic model according to the principle of Tawhid (unity of God), justice (‘adl) and maqasid al-Shari’ah (higher objective of Shari’ah) by going beyond the narrow remit of classical and contemporary discussions produced on the topic, which propose a certain institutional model of governance based on the classical juristic (fiqh) method.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p><em>Good Governance</em>, ataupun yang diterjemahkan ke Bahasa Melayu sebagai tatakelola kerajaan yang baik, atau tadbirurus yang baik merupakan satu konsep yang amat popular dewasa ini. Semenjak konsep tersebut dipopularkan oleh Bank Dunia pada tahun 1989, sehingga kini, ia terus menjadi <em>fad du jour</em> (trend ikutan hari ini) oleh ramai pihak. Tatakelola dilihat sebagai satu kemestian bagi setiap kerajaan di dunia. Ia menjadi tema bagi pihak kerajaan yang ada untuk memperbaiki mutu pemerintahan dan pentadbiran mereka, dan juga menjadi senjata bagi pihak pembangkang di peringkat antarabangsa untuk mengkoreksi dan juga menilai kerajaan yang sedia ada. Persoalannya, apakah sikap Islam terhadap konsep tersebut? Dan apakah di dalam ajaran Islam terdapat juga konsep seumpamanya memandangkan Islam merupakan satu ajaran yang komprehensif yang mencakupi bidang keakhiratan dan juga bidang keduniaan? Artikel ringkas ini akan mengupas secara konsepsual pendekatan Tawhidik, keadilan <em>(‘Adl</em>) dan <em>Maqasid al-Shari’ah</em> terhadap isu tatakelola kerajaan yang baik (<em>Good Governance</em>) berteraskan pembacaan induktif kepada sumber epistemology Islam.</p> Maszlee Malik ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-08-01 2018-08-01 24 31 42 Elemen Nilai-Nilai Murni, Sikap Dan Tingkahlaku Dalam Pengajaran Dan Pembelajaran: Khas Untuk Pelajar Dan Pendidik Guru http://uijournal.usim.edu.my/index.php/uij/article/view/62 <p>The purpose of this study is to explore the importance of good values, attitudes and behaviour in teaching and learning.

Normally, the auction is implemented openly, but there are some people who did it in secret in which the buyer or bidder will whisper alternately price offered to the seller and followed by the other bidders as what happened in the market mechanism in Kuala Muda Malaysia which called as Pasar Bisik. This paper aimed to examine the extent of compliance of the auction sale conducted by whisper to the Islamic law in terms of fulfillment of the principles and conditions of sale contract. The study found that selling auction by whisper is like an ordinary auction sale practice which made either bright light or in writing even in the online auction, ie when the rules and conditions can be fulfilled and independent of the main elements of which are prohibited; <em>riba, gharar, najsy, <sup>c</sup>urbun and maysir</em>. Rather than that, Islam is very concerned and considering the good habit or practice among the society to make it as a rule based on Islamic legal maxims <em>(al-<sup>c</sup>adat Muhakkamah) and (al-ma<sup>c</sup>ruf <sup>c</sup>urfan ka al-masyrut syartan).</em></p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Lelong adalah salah satu proses jual beli yang diamalkan oleh sebahagian masyarakat untuk memenuhi kehidupan mereka dengan cara menawarkan barang atau (perkhidmatan) untuk dibida, mengambil bida kemudian menjual barang kepada pembida tertinggi. Kebiasaannya lelong dilakasanakan secara terbuka sama ada secara lisan ataupun bertulis. Namun ada juga sesetengah masyarakat yang melakukannya secara bisik di mana pembeli atau pembida akan membisikkan secara bergantian harga barang yang ditawarkan kepada penjual dan dikuti oleh pembida-pembida yang lain sepertimana yang berlaku pada mekanisma pasar bisik di Kuala Muda Malaysia. Oleh itu, kertas kerja ini bertujuan untuk mengkaji sejauh mana kepatuhan jual beli lelong yang dilakukan secara bisik terhadap kehendak syarak dari segi terpenuhinya rukun dan syarat jual beli. Hasil kajian mendapati bahawa jual beli lelong secara bisik tak ubahnya seperti praktek jual beli lelong secara tradisional yang dilakukan sama ada secara terang terangan ataupun secara bertulis bahkan lelong di atas talian; iaitu boleh apabila rukun dan syaratnya terpenuhi dan bebas dari elemen utama yang dilarang; riba, gharar, najsy, curbun dan maysir. Selain itu, syarak sangat mengambil berat dan mempertimbangkan aspek kebiasaan atau amalan yang baik yang menjadi tradisi di kalangan masyarakat untuk dijadikan suatu hukum sebagaimana disebutkan dalam kaedah fiqh <em>(al-<sup>c</sup>adat muhakkamah) dan (al-ma<sup>c</sup>ruf <sup>c</sup>urfan ka al-masyrut syartan).</em></p> Aunurrochim Muhamad Mas'ad ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-08-01 2018-08-01 24 55 68
