Abstract

Many of us have become accustomed to some form of help in our homes. For some of us, it is the cleaning lady that comes once a week. For others, they have cleaning, cooking, and driving personnel. Others have gardeners, security personnel, and baby sitters. These are all blessings from Allah Almighty and we should be extremely grateful for them. At the same time, these blessings come with tests and responsibilities for us. Are we fulfilling the rights of the people who work for us in our homes? Or are we treating them kindly and with respect? Are we paying them fair? Or are we burdening them more than what is reasonable? Are we allowing them enough rest and free time for their families, sleep, rest, holidays and spiritual advancement? And, do we leave some housework for ourselves?
