Payment of Wages


The wages of a labourer and the hire of a thing rented should be paid up before the sweat of the labourer dries up or the term for the payment of the hire expires. Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The Almighty Allah said, “There will be three persons whose opponent I shall become on the Resurrection Day: A man who gave in My name and then broke trust, and a man who sold a free man and enjoyed his price, and a man who engaged a labourer and enjoyed full labour from him but did not pay him his wages.”
