Religiosity and development in Islam are closely related where the level of development is dependent upon the practice of religion in the society (see the Quran, 7:96). However, in the reality, it is unclear whether or not this kind of religiosity has a relationship on socio-economic condition of any Muslim society. This study attempts to assess the above issue in the Muslim society in South Kalimantan province, Indonesia by employing the Maqasid al-Shari’ah framework that consists of five components, namely 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 a multistage sampling technique was performed for its sampling selection. The instrument for data collection was a self-administered questionnaire that contains closed-ended questions/items using a five-point Likert scale. Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) was used for the analysis. The findings revealed that the Muslim society in this province has a high religiosity and their religiosity is positively related to all the components of the Maqasid al-Shari’ah. This study provides a set of policy recommendations that can be implemented for improving both Islamic religiosity of the society and their holistic development, not only for the respective society under discussion, but also for Muslim societies in other parts at large.
