<font face="Times-Roman" size="3"><font face="Times-Roman" size="3"> <p align="left">In Islam, the objective of human capital development is not just only to produce a better person in</p> <p align="left">terms of possessing technical knowledge, skills and good values but also a person with a better soul.</p> <p align="left">This is because in Islam, a better person is a person who does not only possess the worldly</p> <p align="left">knowledge, skills and Islamic values but also practices them. Consequently, he or she will be a good</p> <p align="left">worker that will not act in his or her own interests but to be loyal to his or her employer as he or she</p> <p align="left">is fearful (taqwa) of Allah al-Mighty. Hence, human capital development from the Islamic</p> <p align="left">perspective focuses on cleansing of one&rsquo;s soul (tazkiyah al-nafs), </p> </font></font><em><font face="Times-Italic" size="3"><font face="Times-Italic" size="3">ta&rsquo;dib</font></font><font face="Times-Roman" size="3"><font face="Times-Roman" size="3">, the instillation of the </font></font><em><font face="Times-Italic" size="3"><font face="Times-Italic" size="3">tauhid</font></font><font face="Times-Roman" size="3"><font face="Times-Roman" size="3"> <p align="left">philosophy (uluhiyyah and rububiyyah) and the understanding of the concepts of work as </p> <p align="left">khalifah </p> <p align="left">and </p> <p align="left">contents. On the hand, conventional perspective of human capital development is more on the</p> <p align="left">upgrading knowledge and skills. Good values are inculcated informally through teamwork,</p> <p align="left">ceremonies, stories etc. Therefore, human capital development from the Islamic perspective is more</p> <p align="left">integrated and comprehensive compared to the conventional perspective. Consequently, the</p> <p align="left">employers or the organization will gain maximum productivity and profitability due to the maximum</p> <p align="left">gain of the individuals or workers. Thus, it is hypothesized in this study that there is a positive</p> <p align="left">relationship between Islamic human capital development and organizational performance.</p> <p>Organizational performance in this study is measured in terms of service quality and productivity.</p> </font></font><em><font face="Times-Italic" size="3"><font face="Times-Italic" size="3">ibadah,</font></font><font face="Times-Roman" size="3"><font face="Times-Roman" size="3">and </font></font><em><font face="Times-Italic" size="3"><font face="Times-Italic" size="3">al-falah</font></font><font face="Times-Roman" size="3"><font face="Times-Roman" size="3">.
