Some women are using religion of Islam as their constraints of engaging sports when there are actually many other reasons they might not know or realized. A research study was conducted to investigate the perceived benefits and barriers towards physical activity, which focusing only on Malaysian Muslim women and stages of change of their physical activity and exercise involvement in the community. The sample consisted of 400 female Muslim students (n=400) from public universities around Malaysia. There were two questionnaires for data collection: Physical Activity Stages of Change (PASCQ) and Exercise Benefit and Barriers Scale (EBBS). The highest stage in PASCQ was maintenance with 33.5%, which is the final stage in Stages of Change.
