Employee and Wage Through Islamic Perspective

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.

7 Rules in Debt collecting

Author: Ustadz Ammi Nur Baits (Advisory Board of Konsultasisyariah.com)

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

In Islam, theres no deed that is wasted, even just by giving a small aid to others, including lending money to others that is sure to be returned. While we know that lending money for a short period will not decrease our wealth, aside from the propaganda of the disbelievers about devaluation of money over time (time value of money).

However, mostly the creditor are worried when their money is in other people’s hand. And Allah the Most Generous never waste righteous deed of His slave; even though the only thing that he sacrifices is his feeling and anxiousness over the credit, Allah will replace it with His reward.

Ruling of Gathering of Household Equipment

Assalamu’alaikum. May Allah bless you.

Ustadz, I’d like to ask. What is the ruling of holding a gathering of household equipment,  in which I as the host of the gathering provide the equipment. For example, a pan. The price of a pan is IDR 500,000. Thus, we make a gathering of five person for five months, and each member pays IDR 100.000 monthly.

The question is:

What is the ruling for my action, if I as the host – as well as reseller of pan- buy a pan from the supplier with the price of IDR 400.000, and I provide it for the gathering I created with the price of IDR 500.000? Is it permissible, bearing in mind that from that gathering, I receive monthly profit of IDR 100.000 from the price of pan?

May Allah reward you greatly.
