This research aims to understand the contributing factors toward job satisfaction and retention among non-Muslim teachers working in Islamic schools in Malaysia. This understanding has been framed within the mismatch between the non-Muslim teachers' religion or beliefs to the religion and culture in Islamic schools and the organisational system. Through individual interviews with the participants, different levels of environment (personal, organisation and socio-political) responsible in enabling or inhibiting teacher job satisfaction and retention are identified. Every individual confronts events and circumstances that happen around them differently. Teachers who experience more job satisfaction are more likely to demonstrate greater sense of internal locus of control and may decide remain to in the school and profession
