The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on individuals' social interactions and behaviour, prompting a need to explore factors that can positively influence social competence and prosocial behaviour post-pandemic. This research investigates the role of Islamic boarding school values in shaping social competence and prosocial behaviour among individuals in the aftermath of the pandemic. Drawing on a mixed-method approach, this study utilizes both quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews to examine the influence of Islamic boarding school values on individuals' social competency and prosocial tendencies. The sample consists of individuals who have been enrolled in Islamic boarding schools prior to the pandemic and have experienced the challenges and transformations brought about by the COVID-19 crisis. Quantitative data analysis employs statistical techniques, including correlation and regression analyses, to identify the relationships between exposure to Islamic boarding school values, social competence, and prosocial behaviour. The qualitative component explores participants' perceptions and experiences concerning the role of Islamic teachings and values in fostering social competencies and prosocial actions during and after the pandemic. This research seeks to contribute to the understanding of the potential role Islamic boarding schools play in promoting positive social development in a post-pandemic world. Findings from this study may provide valuable insights for educators, policymakers, and community leaders seeking to enhance social competencies and prosocial behaviour among individuals as societies recover and rebuild social connections in the aftermath of the pandemic. Ultimately, the research aims to shed light on the value of Islamic principles in fostering a cohesive and compassionate society, promoting well-being, and building resilience in the face of challenging times.
