Abstract


This study investigated utilisation of internet-enabled devices for academic and religious purposes among Muslim undergraduates in University of Ilorin, Nigeria. All Muslim students in the University constituted the population of the study, while only those in the Faculty of Arts were the target population. Meanwhile, 50 Muslim students were randomly selected from each of the seven departments which totaled 350 undergraduate Muslim students. The instrument used to collect data was researcher-designed questionnaire. Two research hypotheses were formulated and tested using inferential statistics of Pearson Product Moment Correlation Statistics, at 0.05 level of significance. It was revealed from the findings of the study that utilisation of internet-enabled devices significantly related to Muslim students' religious practices and academic performance. Therefore, it was concluded that students should always ensure moderation in chit-chatting and use their internet-enabled devices for the purposes which would boost their academic performance and improve them spiritually.
