It is only natural that the master and labourer come to picture when production, trade and cultivation set in. The relationship between the master and labourer does not warrant any confrontation. On the other hand, it ought, to be of co-operation, as per the teachings of Islam. The Prophet has said that the income earned through one's own labour is the best income. The labourer should be given the wages that they deserve. There should be a proper agreement with regard to the wages, between the employer and the labourer, before the work starts. The amount thus arrived at should be distributed without making any deduction whatsoever and it should be paid even before the sweat of the labourer dried up. The employee should not be exploited and he should have complete security while doing the work assigned to him. It is the responsibility of the employee to endeavour sincerely for a satisfactory completion of the work assigned to him.

What is important is not talking or preaching about what is written in the Quran, BIble, Gita etc. etc. but how every believer or follower of his/her religion practices all the the good things that are written in their Scriptures. Just writing, preaching, talking, reading, singing or having long discourses about them is all meaningless IF THEY ARE NOT PUT INTO PRACTICE. Even here, regarding this particular teaching, how many Muslims would you say practice it sincerely? There are millions of poor people in every nation who work very hard but do not get decent wages nor are they treated fairly (or considered as a friend).

Again a question which is only for the Muslims and NOT a general question! Why should people of other religions know what Qur'an says!?
