Hadith Explanation


Treating Servants Well


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Allah has made some of your brothers as slaves under your care. So whoever has his brother under his care, then let him feed him from his food, and let him clothe him from his clothes. And do not give him a duty he can not bear, and if you give him a duty he can not bear, then assist him with it.” [Jami at-Tirmidhi]

This hadith makes each slave the brother of his master. This being the relationship, the masters have been exhorted to treat their slaves as brothers, give them the same kind of food and clothing as they have themselves, and burden them with an amount of work similar to what they would burden themselves with.

People don’t have slaves anymore, but by analogy, we should apply a similar level of good conduct towards our servants.
