Modern Public Sector Management are groups of public officials with the authority to formulate, interpret and implement government policies and programmes to achieve desired socio-economic development goals using a series of processes from planning, organising to leading and controlling. This paper explores whether or not the delivery of goods and services to the public is implemented in accordance with the objectives of the Qur’an and Sunnah, and in the light of the discussion made by a number of Islamic scholars that ‘none of the existing Muslim Countries has so far achieved a form of government that could be called genuinely Islamic’. By reflecting upon those claims, this paper examines the concept of Islamic Governance and the Maqāsid of the Sharī’ah and suggests approaches towards making Islamic values and principles play a more prominent role in the conduct of public affairs in Negara Brunei Darussalam.
