Bonaparte's Loneliness


From Napoleon the Man --

“In his poor little room at Auxonne, the seventeen-year-old lieutenant of artillery Bonaparte writes in his diary: ‘Always alone in the midst of men, I go back home that I may give myself up to my lonely dreams and to the waves of my melancholy. Whither will my thoughts tend tonight? Towards death....How far removed human beings are from nature! How base they are and contemptible!...Life has become a burden to me, because the men I live with and probably am doomed to live with in the future are as different from me as moonlight differs from sunshine.’”

They must fear Allâh in the exercise of their rights and duties. An employer must establish good relationships with his employees and labor workforce.

Such a relationship must be based on equality and goodwill. Islam upholds the honor and the dignity of the workers. An employer should declare the wages to the worker before the worker embarks on the required work. All agreements, whether oral or written, must be clear, transparent, just, and lawful. Employees should know their duties and responsibilities. They should also be told about their rights in terms of vacations, leaves, compensations, etc. Employers should not assign their workers tasks that they are not capable of doing. Islam requires workers also to maintain good relations with their employers. Workers have to fulfill their duties towards their employers to the best of their abilities and talents.
