It is widely agreed that Malaysia will achieve sustainable prosperity when its citizen live together in harmony. Moreover, a good society derives from good families and good families derive from righteous individuals who transmit insight that builds good character. In Islam, the transmission of this insight is called aqidah (belief system), which continually plays an active role in the enhancement of personal accountability. This study took a qualitative approach using personal interviews to determine methods used to teach aqidah in Malaysia. Findings revealed four methods including multimedia, slide presentations, group discussions and teacher didactics.
