Where Can I Find The Honesty?

Honesty is a scarce thing in my country.

Where can I find the honesty?
Nowadays,  I don’t find it at  schools, at campus, at police offices,at hospitals, at public markets, even at some religious places.
It’s awkward!

“The honesty ” is very difficult to find in exams especially in national examinations.
It’s shameful!

That’s the root of this problem!
The Indonesian Government should change the system of the national education.  Change the purpose of national exams,  and the main thing is to change the purpose of national education.

The system makes the students learn only for getting the high result.  Some of them did bad ways doing the tests. And I’ve seen with my eyes the teachers help the students correcting their answers. I can’t believe it, but it was true.

I don’t have power to change the system and I don’t have the authority to reform it. What I can do is to suggest and to teach the students about honesty, I’ll do it to all my students and my son. I won’t support deceitfulness in anything and I’ll against it as I can do, with my words and my action.

It’s the darkness in Indonesian education. I hope it will be better in the future.

Back to my question above, “Where can I find the honesty?”

Should I go to the jungle to find it? If I found it there , I’ll share it to the students, teachers, the headmasters and to my government.

To all stakeholders especially in education, please correct the system and manage it well. Do the best to get good quality in education.

And to all the students where ever you are, please study hard and do every tests squarely. Do smart and do the best for your study!


There was little problem with this post, I edited it more than twice, alhamdulillah I’ve fixed it. 

Would love to hear about your experience in exam when you were students. Please share with us here!

Thank you for reading!

The Prompt

Write a story told only in dialogue



I Will Never Sell My Honesty

“Here is money for you Mr. Umar Faruq! You’re duty is very easy, just put your signature in this proposal. I’ll keep yourself, and I won’t say to public about your involvement in our business!” said Mr. Ghozali. He was trying to seduce Mr. Umar the headmaster of Jakarta Islamic International School to approve his proposal.

“Do keep in your mind, Sir! It isn’t my business! I can’t help your son to get the high result in final exam. It’s a cheat! Your son must learn hard to get good result. Sorry for that!”

“Wow! Wonderful! I admire your personality, Mr. Faruq! I can’t believe it, in this era, I still find the honest person like you, Mr! Okay, it’s the last chance for you! Please put your signature, here!” said Mr Ghozali. He gave the proposal to Mr.Faruq.

“Ha..ha, thank you for your praise and your huge offering, Mr Ghozali. Okay, I’ll approve it, but please answer my questions first!”
Mr Ghozali laughed and asked, “What’s questions, Sir? I’m not a student anymore! Ha..ha!”

Mr. Faruq smiled at his arrogance guess and said, “If I approve your asking, can you secured me from my Lord?”

“That’s funny question! It’s our business…..”

“Your business! Do remember it!” protested Mr.Faruq.

“Okay, it’s about my business in this world, not in heaven. Forget your Lord Mr.Faruq! Let’s enjoy our lives! Accept that money, it will help to recover all your needs. I do know about your salary’s amount!!
Mr.Faruq was very mad at his guess, but he calmed himself, “You’ve done big mistake in choosing the person! And I have to explain something, your name was taken from the great name of a pious ulama Al Ghozali. If I were you, I’ll shy to do this contemptible deed!”


“I will never sell my honesty, Mr. Ghozali! Thank you for offering, and now please leave my room!”
Mr Ghozali was really upset. He left the room and slammed the door rudely. Mr. Faruq was seeing his guess leaving the room, then said in his heart, “You can’t buy everything with your money, Mr. Ghozali. May Allah guide you!”


I published it too late. My phone’s screen was broken, so I couldn’t connect to internet for several days. I don’t use modem to get the connection. I was so bored, because I couldn’t say hello to you, my friends!  🙂
Finally I wrote a story someday! LOL!


Assalamu’alaikum, my dear friends!
I hope you are always blessed!😊


HONESTY is one of Rasulullah’s noble character
Only him who was called as Al-Ameen
No one refuses this fact
Every believer loves him a lot
He had never Spoken a lie along his life
Till his end
Ya Allah nawwir qalbi ka qalbi Rasulika
Fa hassin khuluqi ka kholqi Rasulika!

يا الله نور قلبي كقلب رسولك
فحسن خلقي كخلق رسولك

O, Allah, brighten my heart as Your Prophet’s heart, and make my manner as good as Your Prophet’s.

الحق من الله، والخطاء مني
