Islamic social entrepreneurship is an alternative to Western social entrepreneurship. This is because Islamic social entrepreneurship is based on the guidance of the Quran and as-Sunnah. The fiqh method is the method used by the ulama of mujtahid and fatwa in order to solve problems which are not mentioned in the Qur’anic and As-Sunnah verses for the new problems. There are five common methods of fiqh being discussed that each item is assessed on the basis of intentions, confidence is not lost with doubt, difficulty in bringing convenience, danger must be eliminated and custom made law. All five common fiqh methods are discussed in this paper to enable social entrepreneurs to pursue holistic social entrepreneurship. The research methodology is based on library research and content analysis based on past studies, fiqh scholars and references to the Qur’anic and As-Sunnah texts. The findings show that all these fiqh methods can be used as a guide to apply the concept of Islamic social entrepreneurship among social entrepreneurs in Malaysia. Therefore, scientific research will be thoroughly screened in this paper.
