Abstract: The objective of this study is to examine whether corporate social responsibility (CSR) disclosures are influenced by the bank specific factor namely bank leverage, size and profitability in Islamic bank in Malaysia. It relates to the value relevance of accounting numbers which intended to assess how well accounting numbers reflect the determinants of CSR among Malaysian Islamic Banks. The determinants of CSR disclosures are investigated using both the Stakeholder Theory and the Agency Theory. This paper hypothesized that lowly leveraged banks will tend to make larger donations than highly leveraged banks. Therefore, leverage negatively influences the disclosure of CSR. Large and profitable banks will tend to be involved in social role than small and less profitable banks. Thus, there is a positive association between corporate social role and the bank's size and profit.
