Abstract


ABSTRACT

The concept of love for knowledge is very relevant in building a great civilization. It is not only relevant, but should be given a serious emphasis because ilmu (knowledge) and amal(practice) are the core of human excellence. The purpose of the study was to model out the relationship between love for knowledge, excellent Muslim personality and Human transformation capital. The study was conducted on 767 students of the Institute of Higher Education around the Klang Valley, Malaysia. Structural Equation Modeling Analysis has been used for the purpose of identifying the role of human transformation capital as a mediator in determining the relationship between love for knowledge and excellent Muslim personality. The results of the analysis show that there was a significant positive relationship between love for knowledge and the excellent Muslims. While the transformation of human capital was found to function significantly as a partial mediator between love for knowledge and excellent Muslims. In other words, love for knowledge will affect the excellent Muslims and transform the human capital. It is recommended that these three important aspects become the fundamental values of success to develop a greater Islamic civilization.

ABSTRAK


Konsep cinta ilmu sangat relevan dalam membina sebuah tamadun yang hebat. Ia bukan sahaja relevan, tetapi cinta ilmu perlu diberikan penekanan yang serius kerana ilmu dan amal adalah teras kecemerlangan manusia.Tujuan kajian ini dilakukan adalah bagi menguji hubungan antara cinta ilmu, Muslim cemerlang dan Transformasi Modal Insan. Kajian dilakukan ke atas 767 orang mahasiswa Institusi Pengajian Tinggi sekitar Lembah Kelang. Analisis Persamaan Struktural (Structural Equation Modeling) digunakan bagi tujuan mengenal pasti peranan Transformasi Modal Insan sebagai mediator dalam menentukan hubungan antara cinta ilmu dan Muslim cemerlang. Hasil analisis menunjukkan terdapat hubungan signifikan positif antara cinta ilmu dengan Muslim cemerlang. Manakala transformasi modal insan didapati berfungsi secara signifikan sebagai partial mediator antara cinta ilmu dengan Muslim cemerlang. Dengan erti kata lain, cinta ilmu akan memberi kesan kepada Muslim cemerlang dengan kewujudan transformasi modal insan.
