Abstract

This research aims to (a) discover the rationality of the values of local wisdom which is found in the teachings of the order (tarekat) of Shidiqiyah which has motivated the emergence of a strong spirit of entrepreneurship; (b) to explain how wealth is understood in the Shidiqiyah order; (c) to explain the behavior of the business agents of the members of the Shidiqiyah order in their effort to acquire wealth. The findings of this research shows that: (1) the strong spirit of entrepreneurship in the Shidiqiyah order is closely related to the the eight vows of willingness of the members of Shidiqiyah order, the teaching of the unity of faith and humanity, and the culture of charity, giving and maintenance of communication. (2) the members of the order believe that wealth has a very important position in their life, since wealth has not only an economic meaning but also spiritual, social, cultural and evangelical meaning; (3) in their effort to acquire wealth, they conduct business by giving emphasis to hard work and proper business management, but they also implement their strength in spiritual and social capital to achieve success in business.
