Business Confidence and Faith

For a religious man, the faith is always taken whenever and wherever he is. Even for a devout in religion, their faith affect all aspects of life, not least in business.
There are several views for an in business:
  • a Christian
That God's will for man to work, well before the fall (Genesis 1:28), and after the fall of man (Genesis 3: 17-19). Before the fall, the work is a gift and a calling from God himself. After the fall, the work remains the grace and calling, but now due to sin then the work was carried out with full competition. In the New Testament, Paul advises the church that let work. He also warned that, "If anyone is not willing to work, neither should he eat" (II Thessalonians 3: 10b)
  • a Moslem
1 In Surat al-Baqarah verse 198 which reads:
It means: "There is no sin for you to look for the gift (sustenance result of commerce) from your Lord".
(QS. Al-Baqarah: 198)
2 In Surat al-Baqarah verse 275 which reads:
Meaning: "And Allah has permitted selling and forbidden usury". (QS. Al-Baqarah: 275)
3 In Surat al-Baqarah verse 282 which reads:
Meaning: "And if you were buying and selling persaksikanlah" .13 (QS. AlBaqarah: 282)
The faith that is embedded in a person's heart, will affect confidence in business, why? Because they do not need proof, they just trust and believe, and they believe scripture is true and impossible one. Confidence is what can not be defeated by anything.
