Why is it important?

: The originality of this paper comes from the empirical studies to identify the level of practice of good akhlaq among young generation especially generation Z. Furthermore, this research is supported by literature review all of the publication in Arabic, English and Malay and also, the source from Islamic scholars and conventional scholars.


The research results find that the highest level of good akhlaq practice among the respondents is the behavior of calmly listening to Quran recitation with a mean score of 4.72, followed by an average and the lowest level of mean score of 3.40, that is, the respondents did not like to loiter. The overall average mean score of 4.44 is high. This shows that the level of good akhlaq practice by polytechnic students in the Central Zone is good but that they are in need of continuous guidance so that good akhlaq can be maintained and enhanced. Gen Z is growing up in a world connected with the ever-growing human-created technology. The generation is often in cyberspace and can connect to every part of the world without boundaries or limitations. Therefore, it is a challenge to apply values and norms based on good akhlaq for Gen Z.
