Muslims believe that Islam is not merely a religion, but a complete way of life. Although the role of religiosity in life is inherently undeniable among observing Muslims, attempts to increase the discussions on the influence of religiosity in scientific studies are still lacking. Moreover, there is limited deliberation on the role of religiosity in cultivating entrepreneurial intention. This conceptual paper, therefore, attempts to reveal the role of religiosity in inculcating entrepreneurial intention. By reviewing secondary data from various articles and books, this research found the crucial role of Islamic religiosity in initiating entrepreneurial intention. The result of this research also explains how early involvement in entrepreneurial activities will trigger a person’s intention to become a future entrepreneur. The authors of this conceptual paper hope it would contribute to the corpus of knowledge and future researchers could use its findings as a valuable reference. The authors also anticipate readers and other scholars to benefit from the exposure on Islamic religiosity in entrepreneurship.
