Purpose – The main objective of this study was to explore the concept of moral judgment among the students in religious schools.The study also sought to determine the influence of Islamic spiritual tendency, and attitudes and principles regarding social norm standards on moral judgments, in accordance with established schemes. Methodology – Three measurements tools were used, namely Ujian Skema Taakulan Akhlak (UPSTA), Soal Selidik Kecenderungan Kerohanian Islam (ISDQ) and Ujian Sikap dan Pegangan Terhadap Standard Kelaziman Sosial (USPSK). Stratified random sampling was used to identify four Islamic religious schools in the state of Kelantan, Malaysia.500 male and female students from these schools were chosen as the subjects of the study.This study used quantitative methods based on a cross-sectional approach.Data from the above mentioned tests and questionnaires were analyzed using stepwise multiple regression.Findings – The results showed that the belief and faith dimension serves as a powerful influence in the moral judgments of Islamic religious school students.The findings also indicate that the belief and faith dimension, the intrinsic dimension, and the extrinsic dimension of the Islamic spiritual tendency had significant influence (R ² = .47, sig .000) on the students' moral judgment. However, the human rights dimension of attitudes and beliefs regarding social norm standards only contributed (R ² = .02, sig .03) to their moral judgments.Significance – This study provides a new understanding of the issue of moral judgment among Islamic religious school students, showing that Islamic spirituality plays an important role in determining the quality of their moral judgment.
