A Mercy for Slaves .
The Prophet (peace be upon him) strongly enjoined the duty of kind and generous treatment upon slaves, servants and labourers engaged in manual work. Jaabir related the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) as saying:
"Feed them with the food which you eat, clothe them with such creatures."
The Apostle (peace be upon him) is further stated to have said :
"Those whom Allah has made your dependents are your brothers, servants and helpmates. Anybody whose brother has been made subservient to him ought to feed him with the food he eats and clothe him with the clothes he wears; command him not to do that which he is unable to do and if it becomes necessary to do so then he should help him in doing the job."
