Yet, despite this growth, leaders’qualities has become a major problem facing by the Takaful operators in Malaysia. Very little attention has been directed to the qualities of Islamic leaders to improve the business performance. Based on this reality, it is of interest to examine whether Islamic leaders’ qualities affect Takaful performance in Malaysia. This study focuses on the relationship between qualities of Islamic leaders’ truthfulness (al-sidq), trust (amanah), knowledge (fathonah), and communication (tabligh) and organizational performance of Takaful operators in Malaysia. Study attempts to achieve three objectives. First, to determine the qualities of Islamic leaders in Malaysian Takaful industry.
