Poverty Knowledge is an approach that is used to understand the root causes of poverty, much precisely from the perspective of the poor, which stands for those with lack of education, lack of income and lack of property ownership. Unknowingly, the poor have created a culture of poverty in response to their poverty. Culture of poverty is a state of a lifestyle correlated with negative attitudes such as laziness, lack of motivation, lack of confidence, easy to give up and surrender to fate, which causes a person or community to keep on living in poverty. The Malay community is associated with those who have negative attitudes, which lead to poverty. In Malaysia, the Malay had the highest percentage of poverty than other races. From 1970 to date, the percentage of poverty among the Malay had stated 0.8 percent compared to the Chinese and Indian, respectively 0.1 percent and 0.6 percent. Shiftless or laziness is the attitude that considered as the cause of the Malay living in poverty. The objectives of this study are i) to explore the causes of poverty in the Malay community in Mukim Sri Medan, ii) to determine the opportunities available around Mukim Sri Medan which could be benefited by the poor and iii) to analyze the main factor that creates poverty from their perspectives.
