The governance of Private Tahfiz Institutions (hereinafter referred to as PTI) in Malaysia has faced numerous challenges. Poor and insufficient infrastructure and facilities, unstandardized and inappropriate management are amongst the emerging difficulties due to fully dependent on government supports and charitable endowment (waqf). Accountability issue in crowd fundraising and donation, lack of financial resources are another demerit associated with Private Tahfiz Institutions. This paper, therefore, aims to firstly describe the concept of Social Entrepreneurship from the Islamic Perspective and its integration in the PTI governance to further embark the Tahfizpreneur Model. This study seeks to highlight three key elements in the proposed formation of Tahfizpreneur Model namely: (i) the actual problems of PTI (ii) The ITS’s administrators’ knowledge on the Islamic Entrepreneurship (iii) Effective marketing strategies on the Private Tahfiz entrepreneurship products. These three essential elements need to be collectively integrated and holistically embraced to produce Tahfizpreneur Models applicable throughout PTI in Malaysia. Hence, in an attempt to transform the existing governance of PTI, this study further suggests that this endeavour should gain full support and requires the cooperation from various authoritative bodies. Mainly, the Stakeholders Tahfiz in Malaysia through the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM), National Institute of Entrepreneurship (INSKEN), Higher Education Institutions (IPT) and State Islamic Religious Council (MAIN) are the core government agencies who should effectively joint effort and increasingly work together to achieve the ultimate goal of the National Tahfiz Education Policy (DPTN) in strengthening Tahfiz Institution in this country.
