Abstract

 This action research was both qualitative and quantitative
methods, which aimed to investigate the problem and the results of
promoting Islamic way behavior among youth in Ban Sarong, Khao Tum
Sub- district, Yarang District, Pattani Province. Qualitative data were  


     collected from a discussion forum and focus group. Ten representatives were
selected to represent local people, religious groups, youth leaders, and
parents. The data were analyzed using content analysis. Quantitative
data were collected from 70 youth involved to action performed
according to plan. The data were analyzed using independent samples ttest
and paired samples t-test. The research findings revealed that 1) most
Muslim leaders recognized and assigned importance to promoting
youth behavior in accordance with the Islamic way of life; however, the
leaders lacked knowledge and understanding of the youth. The youth
did not see the importance of the behavior being promoted and as a
result did not put attention to the activities. As a result, the promotion
of behaviors in accordance with the Islamic way of life was not successful.
Moreover, 2) the youths in the experimental group who participated in
activities organized by the Sarong Conservation Club had a significantly
higher level of Islamic way behavior than those in the control group
who participated in activities organized by the mosque at .01.
