Hibah is one of the planning in Islam which is not widely practiced by Muslims in this country. Most of Malaysian do not understand the concept of Hibah because of inadequate knowledge plus they do not really expose with the implementation of Hibah. In fact, today there are many insurance companies promoting Hibah. Hence, this study will review on are (1) to find out what should be embodied in the framework of Hibah awareness and (2) to examine the relationship between the independents variables (i.e. attitude, promotion, and knowledge) and the dependent variable (i.e. Hibah awareness). This study used quantitative method and collected the data via questionnaire survey to achieve the objectives of the research. A questionnaire was created, and data were collected from 98 respondents of Raub residences in Pahang state. Based on the data from the respondents, it is found that the respondents do know about Hibah and they will implement Hibah to their heirs later in the future. Finally, the correlation analysis indicated that attitude, promotion and knowledge have positive relationship with the Hibah awareness, while, coefficient analysis stated that only attitude and promotion significantly influence the Hibah awareness.
