INTEGRATING SHARIAH-BASED TRAINING METHODS IN MALAYSIAN SHARIAH COMPLIANCE HOSPITALS (MSCH)
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in heightened demands being placed on hospitals, thereby impacting their managerial acumen and operational efficacy. According to the existing literature, the implementation of Islamic hospital ideals in Malaysian healthcare facilities is inadequate. The primary objective of the research is to affect a cultural shift in Shariah-compliant healthcare institutions in Malaysia through the integration of Islamic historical perspectives and metrics. This study is limited to examining the incorporation of Shariah principles into the training methods utilised by these institutions. The present inquiry employs a doctrinal analysis that draws upon a diverse range of primary and secondary sources, such as historical context, contemporary medical procedures, the extant legal framework, and published studies. The empirical findings indicate that hospitals that adhere to Shariah principles exhibit a comprehensive approach to healthcare administration, encompassing aspects such as patient-centered cultures, training for service-oriented staff, distinctive dress codes and environments, and provision of halal pharmaceuticals. The incorporation of Shariah principles in Shariah-compliant hospitals has the potential to pave the way for the implementation of other Islamic organisational cultural adaptations in various public and private entities in the future. The incorporation of Shariah principles into training methodologies is expected to enhance the quality of healthcare services in line with Shariah practises, thereby rendering hospitals more accommodating to Muslim patients. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost healthcare tourism among Muslims, both domestically and internationally.
