Islam is a religion that encompasses all aspects of life. Islam suggests its followers to become entrepreneurs as outlined by God in the Qur’an and Sunnah which is the primary source in educating people to live better, particularly in practicing commercial transactions (mu‘āmalāt). Hence this study is conducted to determine the existence of entrepreneurial culture among 82 employees of Koperasi Kakitangan ANGKASA Berhad (KOKITA), Selangor Malaysia. The study comprises four aspects which include the level of awareness, mastery, education and training, and traits of entrepreneurship. The paper discovers that awareness and traits of entrepreneurship aspects are at a high level, whereas the remaining two aspects, namely mastery and education and training, are at a lower level. The results from Pearson's Correlation Test show that all the four aspects above are not related to gender, age, academic qualifications and income earned.
