Construction industry is the main sector in boosting Malaysian economy, in accordance with the vision of 2020 in making Malaysia as a developed industrial nation that is vastly moving and competitive. In accordance with this Vision 2020, a new form of contsruction method coined as Industrialised Building System or IBS has been the push factor by the Malaysian government in improving production and work quality adopting industrialised construction, prefabrication of components, and the use of mechanisation into the construction sector. However, there are still incumbent issues arising within this sector whereby the designing phase, the construction coordination phase as well as the groupwork integration phase are fragmanted from each other. Due to this fragmentation, there is limited form of communication or communication breakdown happens during the IBS construction among the concerned parties. Therefore, this study was carried out to identify the issue of communication breakdown during the construction phase while recognising Islamic work ethics in addressing this issue. This methodology applied in this study was Islamic qualitative approach. At the same time, this study also applied semi-structured interview as an instrument in collecting data from IBS experts apart from the reference from existing available literature reviews. Results obtained from this study shows that there are four Islamic elements of principles that are addressed as main criterion in addressing such issues which are; Good Deeds (Amal Saleh); Righteousness (Birr); Piety or Fear of God (Taqwa) and; Accountability.
