Abstract: Accountability of governance has become of central concern to members of the public across the globe. Good governance is not new to Islam, indeed. The strength of a nation relies on the ability of its government to govern and demonstrates its accountability in performing the task. A government that has been elected by the people of the country is not only responsible for the governed, but also exposed to public scrutiny that demands more transparency and accountability. A trusted government is one that can demonstrate its accountability and transparency and is continually striving to improve value delivery and increase cost-effectiveness. Trust fulfils the innate desire to be assured that those voted into power will serve the people and they failed to do so, there will be recourse to correct this. The freedom of information demands governments to be more transparent and accountable for their actions and decisions. Information governance is essential in ensuring the availability of evidence of good governance. To this end, it must embrace accountability, transparency and trustworthiness to ensure the accuracy and integrity of information. Therefore, it is imperative for information management professionals, in the Muslim world particularly, to scrutinise their present role and approach in performing managing information whilst achieving organisational goals and fulfilling national agendas. Arguably, the stability and sovereignty of Islamic nations leads to the renaissance of ummah.
