The aim of this study was to examine the factorial structure of the Ummatic Personality Inventory. One of the constructs in UPI, Ibadah (worship) was measured to understand the relationship among the factors namely, Fardhu ‘Ain (articles of Faith and Islam), Fardhu Kifayah-Deen (Islamic-related activities), and Fardhu Kifayah- ‘Aql & Mal (Nurturing mind and wealth). The sample of this study was a group of female students (n= 287) in a government school. Data was analysed using Confirmatory Factor Analysis and Structural Equation Modeling. The findings for the structural model revealed that Fardhu ‘Ain correlated to the Fardhu Kifayah (commitment to Islam). This reflects that Fardhu ‘Ain -closing to God, following the teachings of Prophet Muhammad- is significantly related to Islamic-related activities, more particularly participating in Islamic organization and giving charity. The closing to God and following the teachings of Prophet Muhammad has a strong direct effect on mental health and well-being. Thus, more efforts should be put on educating the closing to God and following up Prophet, representing Fardhu ‘Ain. In future, a deeper analysis of this nature could be made on the other remained construct of Ummatic Personality Inventory and personal functioning of commitment to Islam.
