According to Islam, religion and development are closely related where the level of development is dependent upon the implementation of religion in the society (QS. 7:96; 65:2-4). However, the general condition of the Muslim ummah today seems to be the opposite of what it should be, including in South Kalimantan, Indonesia. On the one hand, the Muslim society seems to be highly religious, but the province has exhibited a low level of development as indicated by the low HDI (Human Development Index). This study attempts to resolve the above issue by examining the role of religiosity and its relationship on socioeconomic development using Maqasid al-Shari’ah framework. The framework consists of five components, i.e., preservation of religion, preservation of life, preservation of intellect, preservation of posterity and preservation of wealth. The survey method was employed for the data collection and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) used for the analysis. The findings showed that religiosity was positively related to various aspects of socioeconomic development as measured by the components of Maqasid al-Shari’ah.
