Five pillars of Islam are ingrained in the minds and actions of the Muslims. Since students at higher learning institutions major into varying disciplines, their ability to relate their respective courses with the five pillars of Islam will likely vary. However, it is very important for Muslim undergraduates outside the religious studies programs to integrate the two because Muslims are Muslims first; they practice their faith in all situations. The main objective of the study is to identify the general relationship between students’ academic disciplines and their affinity with the five pillars of Islam. A special purpose instrument was created to elicit student perceptions towards their preference using a combination of Likert-like, open-ended and multiple-choice questions. The instrument was distributed through a mailing list to the target students. The completed instruments were content-analyzed to identify the general patterns of relationships between the respective academic disciplines and the five pillars of Islam. Findings of the research are deemed significant in suggesting whether or not the undergraduate students can apply their knowledge of the five pillars of Islam to the courses and vice versa. Closeness of association between these two domains will make the students integrated in their religious lives.
