The study explored the usefulness of Islamic work ethics within the context of public sector information technology projects. Using social learning theory and social exchange theory, we examined the trickle-down impact of leader’s Islamic work ethics on project performance via teamwork quality. Data were collected from 188 project managers leading information technology teams. Discriminant validity of constructs was established using confirmatory factor analysis, while hypotheses were tested using SPSS process macro. Statistical analysis showed that Islamic work ethics positively and significantly impacted project performance. Teamwork quality partially mediates the relationship between Islamic work ethics and project performance. Public organizations should develop training programs to enlighten employees about the fundamentals of work practices from the Islamic perspective.
