The main objective of this paper is to examine the effects of Islamic Ethical Administrative Practice (IEAP) on Masjid Performance (MP) among Muslims Community in Lagos State, Nigeria. This study utilized a quantitative approach where it employs a cross-sectional survey and 296 questionnaires returned from Chief Imams of Masaajid (Mosques) in Lagos State, Nigeria. The study used statistical package for social science (SPSS V23) to analyze the data collected. The finding of this study showed that empirical data demonstrates a significant contribution to how IEAP affect Masjid performance. Regression results of the constructs of IEAP indicated that there were positive and significant relationships between IEAP and MP because, the IEAP contained seventeen items which include four constructs model (dimensions): competition, effort, morally responsible conduct, and transparency. Likewise, the Masjid performance is measured by using nine items which include three dimensions: attendance of Masjid, activities of Masjid, and funds of Masjid. In addition, the data on the performance of Masjid demonstrates that the Jama’ah (the congregation of Masjid) would emulate their Imams and consequently increase the performance of the Masjid. The novelty of this method considers the useful implementation of the idea of domains of IEAP sources in order to carry the Jama’ah along in the decision-making process of the Masjid in Lagos State particularly, and Nigeria in general.
