This research aims to measure Economic Islamicity Index through the elaboration process and adaptation of Maqashid Shariah Principles and Economics Principles, then conducted spatial mapping in Islamic economic performance in 34 Province of Indonesia. 


The research approach uses the Embedded Mix Method by developing Multi-Stage Weighted Index results in the Economic Islamicity Index. It was followed by testing global spatial effects with Global Moran's I analysis and testing local spatial effects through the Local Indicator of Spatial Autocorrelation (LISA) consisting of LISA Cluster Map and LISA Significance Map.


The empirical results of the Economic Islamicity Index demonstrate that the Islamic economic performance of Indonesia is very central to DKI Jakarta province and Java island. Meanwhile, spatial global shows a strong spatial autocorrelation relationship with Islamic economic performance in every Indonesia province. Then, the local spatial analysis revealed a significant spatial relationship to Islamic economic performance in DKI Jakarta, South Sulawesi, West Sulawesi, West Java, Banten and central Sulawesi with surrounding areas that are divided into High-High and Low-Low categories.

Originality: This research conducts the process of elaboration and adaptation of Maqashid Shariah Principles and Economics Principles to measure Economic Islamicity Index, then promote spatial role in mapping Islamic economic performance in the Indonesian archipelago.
