Hence, what is the Islamic management method based on the thinking of Sidek Baba. In order to answer this question, this paper was divided into three main discussion topics, namely the philosophy of Islamic management, application of ihsan (a sense of social responsibility borne from religious convictions) and humankind in the Islamic management method and lastly, fundamentals of the Islamic management method. These three elements were explored through an examination and analysis of several literary works by Sidek Baba.
