Purpose: This research paper aims to compare Islamic corporate social responsibility (ICSR) and Conventional (Western) corporate social responsibility (CCSR), and to encourage Islamic institutions and organizations to adopt CSR. Methodology: This research is based on a qualitative research method. A systematic literature review has been used to fulfill the purpose of this research. It aims to answer the following main question: Are Islamic corporate social responsibility (ICSR) and Conventional (Western) corporate social responsibility (CCSR) similar? The search was on the Internet through google scholar, then the most well-known Journals. About 117 topics were related to ICSR, and only about 50 topics were directly related to our question. Then these papers were analyzed and summarized to come up with suitable synthesis, conclusion, and recommendations. Findings: Although ICSR is based on Islamic philosophy, principles, ethics, and values of Shari’a (Holy Quran and Sunnah), it is similar to Western CCSR. However, ICSR is more spiritual and comprehensive, and it covers all aspects of human life, including political, economic, social, and environmental issues. Recommendations: This research is based on a literature review only, therefore conducting empirical studies about the similarities between ICSR and CCSR is recommended
