Introduction: Since Islam is the dominant religion in the country, it is evident that Muslims make up most of the patients at Islamic hospitals. By incorporating Islamic values, Islamic hospitals should get Islamic nursing care. How patients perceive a hospital can be used to gauge its effectiveness. One of the reasons Islamic nursing should be practised is due to patient requests. This study aimed to understand how patients perceive Islamic nursing care.

Methods: Descriptive quantitative study was used with adult inpatient ward patients. Eighty-four subjects in this study met specific requirements and used accidental sampling. A valid and reliable Likert scale and a questionnaire with 26 questions made up the study instrument. Frequency distribution-based data analysis.

Results: Patients perceived good in three components, including doing care only with same-sex patients (88.1%), assisting prayer (66.7%) and doing Islamic communication (66.7%). At the same time, the poor perceived is to assess the spiritual aspect and help with prayer.

Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, nurses can better attend to patients' spiritual needs to ensure that they receive Islamic nursing care.
