Abstract: Women occupy nearly half of the working population. However, there are too many challenges and problems for them to get engaged into a job as they have to sacrifice their time with their family. It is a norm and tradition for Asian Pacific countries that men is the head of the family and women have to be their subservient. Thus, being their own boss is an answer to time flexibility with their family. Consequently, their motivation in involving into a business is quite high. This study uses a quantitative approach in collecting research data whereby the survey data is analyzed descriptively using SPSS. Motivation of Muslim women entrepreneurs in Asian Pacific SMEs can be classified into personal, family, market, society and legal factors whereby personal motivation tops the factors.
