Islam has also defined a set of rules on labor and the labor force. An employer, according to Islamic teachings, must establish a just and cordial relationship with his employees and labor force. Such a relationship must be based on equality, goodwill and the brotherhood of Islam. This is based on the Hadith of God’s Messenger (pbuh) :

‘Your workers and servants are your brothers whom God has placed under you. Whosoever has one under him should feed him of what he eats, clothe him of what he clothes himself, and must not burden him over their ability. But if you must burden them, then help them.’ [Bukhari, Hadith no. 5702]

Furthermore, Islam upholds the honor and the dignity of the workers. God’s Messenger (pbuh) is reported to have said,

“The best of income is that which results from honest labor.” [Musnad Ahmad, Hadith no. 8419]

Moreover, Islam requires an employer to declare the wages to the worker before the worker embarks on the required work.’ [Baihaqi and Abdul Razzaq in al-Musannaf]

God’s Messenger (pbuh) has assured the rights of the worker and the wages he is going to receive. God’s Messenger (pbuh) is reported to have said,

“I am the adversary of three people on the Day of Judgment: one who gave in my name and then was treacherous, one who enslaved a free man and consumed the price and a man who employs a worker but does not pay him his rightful wages.” [Bukhari, Hadith no. 2114]

God’s Messenger (pbuh) has even instructed the employer to pay the wages of his worker before their sweat dries. [Ibn Majah, Hadith no. 2468]
