Authors : Said Saidi Muda, Fatmawati Mohamed Ismail, Mohamad Zaidin Mohamad and Mustafa Che Omar

Abstract: This study is the investigation on the parental role in cultivating religious practices among Muslim students. This study was carried out in a national type primary school in the District of Dungun in Terengganu. As many as 79 standard four students from that school were involved as respondents in the study. This study also aims to investigate the methods used by parents to cultivate religious practices that children practice at home and the effect the parents teaching approach has on these children. The data collection used a set of questionnaires and interview sessions. The data was then first analysed using the SPSS version 14.0 and later the descriptive statistics. The findings show that parents play the main role in ensuring that their children adhere to the religious teachings, especially practices pertaining to the solat and reciting of the Al-Qur’an. Parents who are strict with their children and inculcate a culture of practicing the solat and reciting of the Al-Qur’an would eventually bring up children who adhere to religious practices.
