Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying,
When a slave is sincere to his master and worships Allah well, He will have a double reward
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Looking to the welfare of the master mean that the slave serves his master honestly and takes good
care of his possessions. Worship of Allah here means obedience of Islamic injunctions and obligations. A slave who
is loyal to his master and adheres to religious injunctions stands to earn a double reward.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
The faithful
and diligent slave will have a double reward
.'' (Abu Hurairah added:)
By Him in Whose Hand the soul of Abu
Hurairah is! but for Jihad in the Cause of Allah, and Hajj and kindness to my mother, I would have preferred to die
as a slave
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
'' translated here as "
'' is that slave who is a well-wisher of his master and a devout
worshipper of Allah. When a person is a slave he can neither take part in Jihad on his own nor perform Hajj nor
serve his parents because he is bound by the will of his master. What Abu Hurairah has stated here is that had it not
been of the excellence of Jihad, Hajj and righteousness to the parents, he would have liked to be a slave because then
he would have got double reward promised by the Prophet (PBUH).

Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
slave who worships his Rubb (Allah) well and discharges efficiently and faithfully the duties which are assigned to
him by his master, will have a double reward
In this Hadith the services of the master, his obedience and loyalty are subject to the condition that in
all these matters the slave does not go against the Divine injunctions. That is, he obeys only such orders of his
master which do not incur the disobedience of Allah because in that case obedience of anyone is forbidden. In fact,
the disobedience of unlawful orders is essential.

Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
Three kinds of people will have a double reward: A man from the People of the Book who believes in his Prophet
and (also) believes in Muhammad; a slave who discharges properly the duties towards Allah and towards his master;
and a man who possesses a slave-girl and teaches her manners, educates her well, and frees her and then marries
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
