Besides, Islamic banks have the responsibility to ensure Shariah compliance in its overall operation.

Thus, this study intends to scrutinize the scope of latest regulations on Shariah governance in Islamic banks, then comparing it with the international standard and to analyze its practice in compliance with the stipulated guidelines. These purposes are achieved by using qualitative method of research by applying doctrinal and legal research where the latest annual report and few regulations are referred. Besides, the descriptive and comparative study was also adopted for deep understanding. All data was taken from the Islamic banks listed under BNM and analysed it using content analysis.
