Abstract

This research aims to define various Islamic based identity profile to different individuals by identifying the various degrees of Islamic based identity profile. A scale of measurement in ordinal scale has been used to determine an Islamic based identity profile. The scale is subdivided into three main subsections, namely very rarely, average level and very frequently. By using the scale of measurement on an ordinal scale, it assists in developing a numerical hypothesis that is then used to determine an individual's Islamic based identity profile using the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. Using twenty-four set of questions, the research used the evidence presented to support a given Islamic based identity profile of a specific individual and filtered it using various degrees of probabilities of the evidence theory model, which have aided in proving or validating a particular hypothesis. The questions are divided into three types  based on Islamic identity profile which include Fitrah, Khalifah and Din. The conclusion made is that we may be able to easily diagnose an individual’s Islamic based identity profile using Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence.
