On the way, I met many many people who are willing to do things to gain wealth. They commit a crime by fraud, deceit, robbery and even they could be guilty of murder in order to acquire wealth. And even after they get rich, many of them then use the wealth obtained to perform a variety of actions that are not good. Many of them use such property to gamble, get drunk and fornicate. O my master according to the conclusions from my observations there is no good at all of the wealth “.
Teacher: “Oh, your observations are very interesting indeed my disciple. So what do you think what we should do? ”
First pupil: ‘I think man should abstain from wealth because wealth is the source of evil. So that we ourselves can always close and also remember to God Almighty, we have to live away from wealth. We must always hold ourselves to the Almighty and leave such worldly wealth was the bond. Because we need to purify our hearts by abandoning the things that can make our hearts turn to other than God Almighty. ”

They used their wealth to build a place of worship, sympathize orphans, they gave food and build shelter for the poor and they also help those people who are in distress. They have been looking very much wealth, and wealth is used to perform goodness-many people. So according to my conclusion, that wealth is a source of goodness, because wealth can make people bring good to be able to give and to help people who are in distress. ”
Teacher: “What a remarkable observation of my students. So what do you think should be done? ”
Second pupil: “I think it’s important to look for human wealth.
