Breach of Contract
BREACH OF DUTY
There is a great sin in breach of trust. The Beloved Habeeb (Sallallhu Alaihi Wassallam) said: “Everyone of you is a King and everyone of you will be asked about his subjects. The Imam who is a King over the people will be asked about his subjects.”
In this way, the head of the family is the King over his family, a servant is a King over his master’s properties. In case, the trust is broken, there is breach of duty with consequence of sin and punishment. The Holy Prophet (Sallallhu Alaihi Wassallam) said: “Don’t act treacherously with Allah about His pledge.”
Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibne-Omar reported that Allah’s Apostle (Sallallhu Alaihi Wassallam) said: “(As for) a treacherous man, a standard will be raised for him on the Day of Resurrection. It will be declared, ‘This is the treachery of so and so’”. (Agreed)
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallhu Alaihi Wassallam) said: “When you find a man committing breach of trust in the way of Allah, burn his commodities and beat him. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallallhu Alaihi Wassallam) cursed the bribe-taker and the bribe-giver”.
