Abstract: The article aims at explaining that there is an interconnected link between corruption and culture. For many Muslims in Indonesia, sharia had become religious symbol, justification and source of meaning of life. Nevertheless, practically, as cultural values sharia cannot talk loudly contradicting the practice of everyday corruption. The research is a socio-legal explanation. It tries to describe that the agenda of eradicating corruption can be empowered through cultural values. Sharia as living values should be modified as the backbone spirit to fight harmful behavior. The research indicates that sharia should serve psychological basis for obedience and legal awareness. Moreover, sharia can lead the believers to maintain and secure public interest by promulgating the national anti-corruption law and emphasizing its necessity for the society. The law is not only social contract but also spiritual sign of commitment.
