Work Ethic Based on Islamic Perspective

Abdul Chalim


Moderate work ethics in a lifetime derived from the deficiency of religious understanding - that converge to ritualistic behavior and afterlife oriented that abandon the aspects of humankind. As Muslims within high-work ethics should have self-motivation, thinking skills, and performing positive things, not to satisfy quickly, tranquil, self-control, persistent, hard-working, and realize all we've done is part of worship. Work is an attempt actualization of self-humans to understand God's gift on earth. Work means continuity of human's duty as a God's caliph. The accomplished work means as a process of self-discovery, and so forth for pursuing results to fulfill the basic human needs. Work is a process to achieve purposes, so work ethics are essentials to be a cornerstone in the working process for everyone. Thus, the work results mean zero value if the process is in contrast to the natures or the established universal law (grace, truth, and integrity). Based on Islamic sight, work is a kind of faith expression, for whom with the completed value claims better. For Muslims, the supreme and highest value refers to work ethic is "intention". The intention for Muslims is an inspiration and motivation to become human beings who are professional at work. For someone that works with intentions are conscious of the commitment and awareness of self that is important at work, that is the good pleasure of God.
