What follows is a comparative understanding of Western and Islamic thought on CSR and the increasing awareness of it in Malaysia. This commitment from a policy angle may be described as being in line with maqasid al-shari'ah or the goals and purposes of Islamic law. The term ‘CSR’ was popularised in the early 1970s after the formation of many multinational corporations, and its definition is widely debated. A corporation in today’s globalised world can no longer hold the view that solving social problems is the duty of governments and social agencies and that managers are only to serve the interests of stakeholders and no-one else. This view is deeply-rooted in self-interest.
