In Malaysia, there are various issues relating to the management of multi-storey development in the civil law perspective which fails to be resolved. The two-fold objectives of this paper is to highlight some of the management issues in the management of multi storey development in Malaysia and suggest how these issues could be solved by applying Islamic principles. The research method used in writing up this paper is the qualitative research in which it will be based on revealed sources of Al-Qur’an, Hadith and writings of the traditional jurists from Hanafi, Maliki, Hambali and Shafie schools of thoughts as well as contemporary writers in Islamic jurisprudence. The finding of this paper is that even with no direct principle that demonstrates management of multi storey buildings from the Islamic perspective, it is believed that if the Joint Management Body (“JMB”) and Management Corporation (“MC”) apply the qualities and practices of the Muslim scholars and Shariah teachings, it will assist the JMB and MC in discharging their responsibilities in the best interest of all the parties concerned.

Keywords: Multi-Storey Buildings, Strata Management, Joint Management Body, Management Corporation.
