The Unfixed Labour


Suleiman b. Ja’fer  accompanied  Imam Ali b. Musa RezA(AS) to
work. It was  late in  the  evening when they  returned. Just
as Suleiman  wanted to part, Imam said: ” Why don’t you be my
guest tonight?” Suleiman complied.
When they entered the house, a group  of Imam’s servants were
busy in the garden. Imam looked at them and found  a stranger
among them working on a small patch.
  “Who is he?” Imam queried.
  “We have hired him to help us finish the work,”
   the servants replied.
  “Very well,” Imam said. “How  much labour has
   been fixed for him?”
The servants  said that nothing  had been fixed but they would
pay him something at the end.
Immediately  Imam (AS) showed  his displeasure. His voice rose
with anger and the servants were terrified.
  “How often have I told  you that the labour must be fixed
  before hiring? If you exact labour from a worker without
  telling  how much  you  would pay him, he would never be
  satisfied at  the end.  And I do not mind if you pay him
  more  than what you  promised  him. But his wage must be
  fixed  from the  beginning. And  remember,  pay a worker
   before his sweat dries on his body.”

    no different. Employing Uninstaller Software program To Get rid of Winrar – There are a lot of great quality uninstallers out there
    on the web. Possessing difficulty putting in a
