The act of saving people from harm and loss is greatly liked by Allah, no matter how small it is. Allah is greatly pleased if a person removes from the passage something that causes harm to people.
Does Islam encourage people to work even though if the only work they can find is low paid manual labor? Well, it is clear that Islam encourages hard work, enterprise and self sufficiency. Even when one is rightfully eligible to receive from the public treasury it is more superior to earn one’s own income. Even if the job entails manual labor and is not well remunerated, provided one is not being taken advantage of, one should not be averse to taking up the job....
The (accepted legal) view according to the jurisconsults (fuqaha') from among the predecessors (salaf) and the successors (khalaf), is that the first type of earning (earning of a person for himself, refers Part 4) is permissible without any qualification, and it is even obligatory when there is a need. A group from among the ignorant ascetics and the foolish ones of the Sufis says, "Earning a livelihood is indeed forbidden! It is not legally permitted except when absolutely necessary, as in the case of eating carrion."

The high-level panel on the Federal Institutions of Islam (Malaysia) has invited Malaysians, including non-Muslims, to submit written memorandums expressing their opinions, views and proposals for the panel's consideration in relation to the federal administration of Islamic institutions in the country. Hmm... maybe I should send a memo to them??
The Messenger of Allah taught Muslims to have mercy for all of God's creation. There are many reports of his love for animals, resulting in their historical acceptance among Muslims.
The assumption that he has already paid Zakat by only removing some of his/her wealth by doing certain things such as making a feast, donating or giving some charity. This is wrong.
Now, there are two types of earning: (1) the earning of a person for himself; and (2) the earning of a person against himself. 1. As for the earner for himself, he is the seeker of what is necessary for him of the permissible (things); 2. The earner against himself is the one who covets that which is against him, and in which there is a sin, for instance, that which is acquired by the thief.
