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!

There Is No Reason To Be Arrogant!

Assalamu’alaikum everyone!
Barakallahu fiikum,
O, you who showed the arrogance!
Contemplate for a moment, indeed mankind is only a grave of goods foul.
If people know what is in his stomach, he wouldn’t be arrogant.

Is there in man’s most respected as the head?
Everyone knows, there are 5 dirty stuffs around the head:
1. What comes out of the nose?
2.What comes out of the eyes?
3.What comes out of the ears?
4.What comes out of the mouth?
5.And what comes out of the teeth?

O, children of soil, and that will be eaten by soil. Please contemplate for a moment! You will be eaten by soil!
