Management of good governance of social entrepreneurship from Maqasid al-Shariah implies moderation (wasatiyyah). This framework allows social entrepreneurship with profit and non-profit agenda to be managed with moderate approach of Maqasid al-Shariah. The regulatory framework under traditional maqasid is perceived to be of rigid and reduces flexibility and the hybrid model of corporate entities in social entrepreneurship.
