Now, many people like to show off wealth. Create luxurious stately buildings, villas, amid people who are still living under bridges and rickety huts. Many people try to gain over luxury cars worth, in the middle of the vast majority of people crammed into a public vehicle uncomfortable and insecure, which is no longer eligible transportation safety. There are still many people burst-scattering food and drink, in the middle of the majority of the population starving, hard to get a job and livelihood. Thus, hedonism can be defined as a doctrine which holds that the behavior is driven by the desire or the desire for pleasure and avoidance of all suffering. While in the Indonesian Encyclopedia it is mentioned that hedonism is an understanding that argues satisfaction is the only reason in moral acts. And the teaching of hedonism argues that good and bad norm is happiness, therefore an act is considered good if it brings happiness, while the act is considered bad if that brings suffer. Hedonism culture is increasingly widely followed humans, both children, adolescents and parents, regardless of their social status, whether rich or poor. Hedonism is originally derived from the Greek namely Hedomikos, which is picked up from the root word "Hedone" which means "satisfaction". In the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, "Hedonism" is defined as "the belief that pleasure should be the main aim in life." Hedonism is a belief that pleasure should be a primary goal in life. While in Arabic "hedonism" is called the "school of Al Mut'ah" or "Madhhab Al Ladhdhah." In the dictionary Al-Munawwir stated as follows: "Hedonism is a school that says that real delicacy and happiness is the primary goal in life‛. Hedonism is a view of life which assumes that material pleasure and enjoyment is the main goal of life. In the al-Qur’a>n, there are some terms that leads to this sense; at-takatsur, istaghna, taghyun, tabdzir, and israf. All of these terms leads to a view of life that is oriented to the pleasures of the world. The al-Qur’a>n insists that all forms of pleasure in the world (children, women, possessions, livestock) were created by God to test whether humans grateful or kufr. Humans who live only oriented pursuit of pleasure, to accumulate wealth (at-takatsur), felt himself rich (istaghna), beyond the limit (taghyun), scatter treasures (tabdzir) and exaggerated (israf), are humans hedonist which threatened by the Al-Qur’a>n with torment by God. Hedonism can make people feel self-sufficient (istaghna), so feel no need of others. A relationship with ourselves as well be estranged because the soul of a hedonist, feel the need to continue to pursue the satisfaction that his life was not peaceful. The al-Qur’a>n gives a very humanistic solution to the problem of hedonism. Namely with grateful, spend treasures in Allah's way, the simple life (zuhud and wara ') and remember death.
