Labour and Hard Work



SAYINGS OF THE MESSENGER
(SALLALLAHO-ALAIHE-WA-AALEHI-WASALLAM)
Labour and Hard Work
115.       Sayyidina Miqdaam bin Ma’dikarb (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
       No one has eaten better food than what he has earned toiling with his own hands. Dawood (Peace be upon Him) the Prophet of Allah used to earn his sustenance with his own manual labour. (Bukhari, Targheeb)

116.       Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
       It is much better for one of you to pick up wood on his back and earn his livelihood by selling it than to beg money from another. Some may give and some may not. (Malik, Muslim, Bukhari, Targheeb)

117.       Sayyidina ‘Adullah bin ‘Umar (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
       Surely, Allah likes a skilful believer. (Tabarani, Bayhaqi,  Targheeb)

118.       Sayyidatina ‘Aishah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ha)
       The person who having toiled with his hands returns in the evening tired and worn out, sees his evening with his (minor) sins forgiven. (Tabarani, Targheeb)

119.       Sayyidina Sa’eed bin ‘Umayr (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
       The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon Him) was asked, “What is the best earning?” He said, “a man’s toiling with his own hands and every earning that is through pious effort.” (Haakim, Targheeb)

120.       Sayyidina ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
       Pay the labourer his wages before his perspiration dries. (Ibn Majah, Targheeb)

121.       Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah (Radi-ALLAHO-An-ho)
       Allah Ta’ala has said, “There are three men against whom I will take a stand and he whom I oppose, I shall give him (a crushing) defeat. One of them is a man who gave assurance in My name but then was faithless; the other, a man who sold a free man and enjoyed the price he received for him; and the third, one who hired someone on wages but did not pay him his wages after getting him to do what he was hired to do.” (Bukhari, Ibn Majah, Targheeb)
