Abstract: This paper aims to propose a conceptual framework to clarify the talent management practices and its effects on the sustainable performance of faculty members to build a sustainable higher educational institution from an Islamic work ethical perspective in South Asian context, especially in Bangladesh. This study is primarily a conceptual paper focusing on objectives which are determined to the influence of talent management practices and sustainable performance of faculty members and the strong effect of Islamic work ethics between talent management practices and sustainable performance of faculty members. The paper also shows after analysing the previous literatures and identifying a strong research gap on the aspects that limited research found which uses the 'Theory of Maqasid al-Shariah' to explain about the talent management practices and sustainable performance of faculty members with the strong effect of Islamic work ethics to become a competitive higher educational institution. Based on in- depth discussion and meta-analysis, this paper suggests a new conceptual model to increase the sustainable performance of faculty members with strong Islamic work ethics and the competitiveness of the higher educational institutions.
