Abstract

This research attempts to explore the linkages between Taqwa dimensions of Islamic spirituality and Islamic social responsibility, with continuance organizational commitment. The current study attempts to contribute new knowledge pertaining to Islamic management area by integrating the Islamic heritage with western literature whereby Islamic spirituality and Islamic social responsibility were developed from the Islamic heritage sources and those of continuance organizational commitment from western literature. Using a simple random sampling technique, the survey data used for this empirical research was drawn from 230 respondents from Lembaga Tabung Haji organization in Malaysia. Employing multiple regression analysis and using SPSS software, the study tests several hypotheses that Taqwa components of Islamic spirituality and Islamic social responsibility will exert statistically significant influences on continuance organizational commitment. The study found support for both main hypotheses. The model can explain only 18.2 % of the variance in continuance commitment. This is mainly contributed by integrity and emotional control indicators of Islamic social responsibility.
