Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
Allah, the Exalted, says:
`I will contend on the Day of Resurrection against three (types of) people: One who makes a covenant in My Name
and then breaks it; one who sells a free man as a slave and devours his price; and one who hires a workman and
having taken full work from him, does not pay him his wages
This Hadith highlights the importance of fulfillment of promise, the prohibition of the sale of a free
person, and the payment of due wages to the labourers.
