It was considered successful in internalizing Islam into the organization's work system. Reviewing the workings of the WG along with the criteria within it are the main focus. We follow the pattern of qualitative work, such as make observations and interviews early, perform data collection, and write the results of the field to the worksheet.The study found that initial emphasis should emerge from a leader (top Management). We call it by ‘the call of the heart’, not because of the encouragement of the other party or are profitable. So understanding that leadership is a reorientation intention readable work, building work paradigm for worship (to Allah), ukhuwah Islamiyah, and worship as the income base of the organization.
