If you are talking about whether we should expect to be paid our salary for the work which we do, then the answer is - Yes
But if you are doing some helpful type of work with some expectation of materiel returns, then then you should not do that. We should do it as a part of our duty
God will definitely give us the fruits in some form or other.
Maybe in this life or hereafter.
Better to leave it to Him.
Surely He knows what is best for us

The fruits may not be as ripe as we expected....but the duty needs to be done....in any case.... so ...if we do that way....the results may come bit better....and exceed the expectations...

Although it resembles the preaching of Bhagavad Gita : Jo hua, accha hua, Jo ho raha hai, accha ho raha hai, Jo hoga woh bhi accha hi hoga" or karam karo phal ki aasha maat koro but I am bit allergic to these sayings. I am a common man ... I have a strong desire to succeed and if it fails , it is never best to me ... it hurts me to the bone. But again , I see how quickly I get up.

I don't agree because we must give our best to make it happen best ... then hope for the best but at the same time be prepared for the worst and try again to our best to get the best out of it
