—This research will try to highlight on Communities
of Practice (CoP) and how CoP will offer a productive solution
for improving knowledge and Knowledge Management (KM).
The relationship between individual and social learning has
received a great deal of attention from the organisation theory
perspective. Based on previous literature, the social
constructivist perspective challenges the traditional idea that
learning takes place in individuals’ minds or in organisational
systems and structures, where it starts with the assumption that
learning occurs and knowledge is created mainly through
conversations and interactions between people. Another
interesting point that will be highlighted in this research is the
exploration and understanding of the processes and dynamics
of CoP (synonym with brotherhood of Muslims) in
Muslim-dominated organisations. We found the dearth of
empirical research into how social interaction and learning is
actually created in religious community; and in addition for this
research we also look upon the CoP issues from Islamic
—Communities of practices, Islamic thoughts,
knowledge management, Muslim communities.
