Maulana Sheikh NazimWORK & EMPLOYMENT
We say, give your worker his right. You must make a contract before taking employment with employer. You must ask, how much do you want to do this, and he says I may do this for this amount. Before he finishes, you may pay him. Islam says, if a worker tells you I will do this for you for ten pounds, when he finishes, give him one pound extra. That is the perfection of Islam, not less - extra must be given, it is obligatory for faith. When you please a worker, he works better. As long as you are giving less workers are not happy. Make your worker happy and he works better. If you do not make him happy, it is impossible for that worker to make you happy. Look after workers, because we can't do without workers. However, Islam does not promote worker armies, no unions. It is no good in Islam to make unions of workers, it means civil armies. Most problems for the State are from unions active in states. You won't be able to control them. Therefore, in Islam small factories instead of gigantic factories. Islam is against huge factories. There must be small ones and they must have only a few people, so that they may be more easily controlled. No worker armies. Worker armies are the biggest problem for every government. They are always shaking governments and economy of countries or states. As much as you give them, you can't make them satisfied.
A Muslim worker should fear his Lord not to make something false, not to cheat. Islam says, if a person cheats us, he is not of our community. Fear of God should prevent him from cheating. Therefore, a real Muslim worker would be preferred and employers must chose between Muslim workers and non-Muslims, or believers and unbelievers.

<b>Work/Employment</b>

A Muslim worker should fear his Lord not to make something false, not to cheat. Islam says, if a person cheats us, he is not of our community. Fear of God should prevent him from cheating. Therefore, a real Muslim worker would be preferred and employers must try Muslim workers and non-Muslims, or believers and unbelievers. In Islam court cases are not too long, but should be held after one month, after two months. It is not good in Islam to make cold cases. When it is hot, when it is cooked, serve it for eating, don't delay it. Therefore, if anything happens, any criminal case, that person must be punished quickly. Judgement must be given quickly. Secondly, everyone must defend himself. If he needs someone, the jury must help him. There must be thousands and thousands of laws to let people escape. No, a criminal must be brought quickly before the judge and what he did must be punished.
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. As we said, Islam brought a perfection for the life of mankind in all activities he is involved in - only Islam brought perfect activities. Islam makes from one day, from twenty-four hours - eight hours for working. Those eight hours are the limit for working people. And eight hours for their Lord. Sixteen hours are for a man for working, every day sixteen hours for his life, for his provisions, for his family, for his nation, for humanity and eight hours for the servanthood of Allah Almighty, the Creator. And eight hours he is free for resting and sleeping. This becomes twenty-four hours.

The eight hours a person works are for himself, for his family. If he is asking to work more than eight hours - one hour, two hours, three hours - it is not for himself, it should be for Allah or for the sake of Allah.
