For Muslims, justice is an integral and indispensable part of all human relationships, including those within the workplace, and between employers and workers. This concept of justice means fairness, balance, and reciprocal respect for the dignity and rights of owners, managers, and employees. One of these rights is the right of free association for the protection of the dignity and economic well-being of working people.
This about Mr.Zavere Poonawala who is a well-known industrialist in Pune. He had his driver named Mr.Ganga Datt with him for the last 30 years on his limousine, which was originally owned by Acharya Rajneesh.
Mr.Ganga Datt passed away recently and at that time Mr. Poonawala was in Mumbai for some important work. As soon as he heard the news, he canceled all his meetings, requested the driver's family to await him for the cremation and came back to Pune immediately by a helicopter.
On reaching Pune he asked the limo to be decorated with flowers as he wished Mr.Ganga Datt should be taken in the same car which he himself had driven since the beginning. When Ganga Datt's family agreed to his wishes, he himself drove Mr.Ganga Datt from his home up to the ghat on his last journey.
When asked about it, Mr. Poonawala replied that Mr.Ganga Datt had served him day and night and he could at least do this being eternally grateful for him. He further added that Mr.Ganga Datt rose up from poverty and educated both his children very well. His daughter is a Chartered accountant and that is so commendable.
His comment in the end, is the essence of a successful life in all aspects:. "Everybody earns money which is nothing unusual in that, but we should always be grateful to those people who contribute for our success. This is the belief, we have been brought up with ,which made me do, what I did".
An inspiring example of Humility.
This is INDIA…….. Moral of this story needs to be remembered throughout our lives.
Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer - We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do. (Holy Quran S16-A97)
