Author: Ustadz Abu Ahmad Said Yai

{لَتُبْلَوُنَّ فِي أَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنْفُسِكُمْ وَلَتَسْمَعُنَّ مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ وَمِنَ الَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا أَذًى كَثِيرًا وَإِنْ تَصْبِرُوا وَتَتَّقُوا فَإِنَّ ذَلِكَ مِنْ عَزْمِ الْأُمُورِ}

“(Believers), you will certainly be put to test in regard to your properties and lives, and you will certainly hear many hurtful things from those who were granted the Book before you, and from those who have associated others with Allah in His Divinity. If you remain patient and God-fearing this indeed is a matter of great resolution.” (chapter Ali Imran:186) [1]

Concise Interpretation

Sheikh ‘Abdurrahman As-Sa’di said, “Allah the Exalted proclaimed and told the believers that they will be tested upon their wealth, by spending the obligatory and voluntary maintenances and by loosing it in Allah’s Cause (in worship/struggle). (They will also be tested) upon themselves with various major troubles that given to them by many people.

Sincerity, The Key to Successful Social Life

For a muslim, socializing with others should be based on correct intention and motivation. If he hates or loves them, encourages or discourages them, and does or doesn’t do something because of Allah the Glorified and Exalted, he will obtain pleasures in socializing with anyone.

Regarding these notation, Sheikh al Islam Ibn Taimiyya composed a beautiful saying, “You could obtain your pleasure in socializing with other people if you interact with them because of Allah, you expect for Allah’s please and not their please, you fear Allah and not them, you do good to them because you’re expecting Allah’s rewards and not their, you do not oppress them because of your fear of Allah, and not of them. It is as mentioned in a narration, “Expect your rewards from Allah regarding the human affairs, and do not expect for reward from human in Allah’s affair. Fear Allah in regards to the human affairs, and do not fear human regarding Allah’s affair.”

When A Disbeliever works in A Company Owned by A Muslim

When A Disbeliever works in A Company Owned by A Musiim

In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, amma ba’du

In general, muslims are allowed to employ disbeliever in their company or foundation. There are several indications that support this claim. In his book of sound hadith, Imam al Bukhari wrote in a chapter titlled ,

باب إِذَا وَكَّلَ الْمُسْلِمُ حَرْبِيًّا فِى دَارِ الْحَرْبِ ، أَوْ فِى دَارِ الإِسْلاَمِ، جَازَ

It is allowed for a muslim to be represented by a harb infidel (the part of disbelievers/infidels with the harshest enmity towards Islam–ed) in a harb country, or in a islamic country. (see: Shahih Bukhari, 8/349).

And his opinion regarding law matters is known by every title of the chapter in his book of valid hadith.

Then he mentioned a hadith from Abdurrahman bin Auf –may Allah be pleased with him-, in which he said,

كَاتَبْتُ أُمَيَّةَ بْنَ خَلَفٍ كِتَابًا بِأَنْ يَحْفَظَنِى فِى صَاغِيَتِى بِمَكَّةَ ، وَأَحْفَظَهُ فِى صَاغِيَتِهِ بِالْمَدِينَةِ

I wrote a letter to Muawiya Ibn Khalaf to protect my kins in Mecca, and I’ll protect his kins in Medina. (Narrated by Bukhari no. 2301).

In Islam, Wage is also called “ujrah”. Wage is a compensation over service given by worker. To further insight of thorough definition of wage in Islam, we shall see chapter At Taubah (The Repentance) :105, which can be translated as, “And tell them, (O Prophet): “Keep working: Allah will behold your works and so will His Messenger and the believers; and you shall be brought back to Him Who knows that which is beyond the reach of perception and that which is within the reach of perception. He will then declare to you all that you have been doing.” And chapter An Nahl/The Bee: 97, which can be translated as, “Whosoever acts righteously – whether a man or a woman – and embraces belief, We will surely grant him a good life; and will surely grant such persons their reward according to the best of their deeds.”

Employee and Wage: Through Islamic Perspective (part 1)

Author: Prof. Muhammad

(Chairman of Sekolah Tinggi Ekonomi Islam (STEI)Yogyakarta)

Islam has a distinct perspective regarding employment which contains at least four principles to honor the employee or worker’s rights, including the wage distribution system.

Worker and his wage is something inseparable. Both has always became interesting topic to discuss about; even the labor strike also mostly about their demand to get a raising in salary. My article this time will be discussing about these two important topics. Important, I say, because policy in the minimum wage sector has became a part of a wider agenda of reformation of employment. This policy arises after the economic crisis in 1997/1998; also, in Indonesia, through the government’s commitment regarding the minimum wage of the worker.
