The development of new technologies and lifestyle changes have significantly influenced the development of electronic payment systems, also known as non-cash payments. The use of electronic money must adhere to Islamic principles of ethics and morality, avoiding transactions that are prohibited or harmful to others and prioritising the security and privacy of user data. This research involves a document review of electronic money instruments in Indonesia and the current advantages of electronic money with data collection by reading related literature. This article aims to analyse the behaviour intention of e-money users using maqhasid shariah approach and DSN MUI fatwa. The attitude of e-money users determines in carrying out economic activities, of course, what will be considered is the benefit for themselves and others, besides that the implementation of economic activities using e-money is influenced by the environment and the people around them, this is called subjective norms, (normative belief) and perceived behavioural control, There are two indicators to assess hifdz al-mal, namely macro indicators with a top-down approach, and micro focusing on a bottom-up approach, hifdz al-mal can be implemented in various aspects of life in the realm of finance and business practices, this concept emphasises ethical and responsible behaviour in acquiring, managing and distributing wealth, ensuring the welfare of individuals and society.
