This research used a qualitative descriptive method with case studies approach. The data collection techniques used are in-depth interviews, participative observation, and documentation. In this research, the business behavior of Muslim are in terms of the following aspects: motivation, commitment to family, experienced obstacles, responsibilities, activities, as well as adopting a business strategy which is guided from four characters of the Prophet namely: Siddiq (truthful), Amanah (trustworthy), Fathanah (smart/wise), and Tabligh (deliver). Results of this research show that doing business is not forbidden in Islam as long as it does not ignore the main task of a Muslim woman as a housewife.
