Thus, data was collected through a questionnaire, which covers all variables - financial reward, academic field, laws and regulations, career environment, and social status. Each hypothesis has a number of questions regarding the variables relationship and its impact on educational institutions (universities), as well as illustrating the importance of job satisfaction from the beginning to the end of contract according to Islamic perspective. The study has been conducted at “Middle East University” and “World Islamic Sciences University” which are applying international characteristics in recruiting the educators from outside Jordan.
