The Islamic social enterprise is a new type of entrepreneurship that is based on the Islamic (Shariah) principles. Previous studies on the social entrepreneurship are mainly viewed from the western perspective. Little is known about Islamic Social enterprise. The purpose of this paper is to explore the emergence of social Islamic enterprise by reviewing literatures on both the Islamic and conventional perspectives. The main findings of this study showed that studies on Islamic social enterprise is still at the infancy stage. The current literatures focus on defining the term and proposing models to understand it. In addition, current literature revolves around the influence of personality traits on Muslim social entrepreneurship intention, motives to initiate social enterprises, the relationship between social entrepreneurship and organisational effectiveness. Empirical studies are still limited and there are needs for more studies in this field.
