Abstract: The study evaluates the capital structure of Malaysian firms from a unique perspective by evaluating the impact of Shari’ah compliance on firm’s financing decision. We find that firms that are Shari’ah compliant tend to lean towards lower debt issues to finance their deficits, implying that the compliance status has an impact on their cost of equity which ultimately affects cost of capital.
