Manifestation of courtesy in the business provides guarantee for its promotion. So as a businessman you have to assume several responsibilities:


1.   To purvey the goods of better and better quality, and not to dispose to others the poor quality, with which you too are not satisfied.


2.     To earn the confidence of your customers with your conduct so that they may regard you as their well-wisher and have a good impression about you, and repose their full confidence in you that they will never be cheated by your shop or enterprise.


3.     To offer the exact and perfect suggestion to a customer who consults you though at the cost of your loss.


4.     To be highly punctual in opening the shop and to occupy the chair quite patiently. The early quest for provision, after performing the necessary prayers and duties, invokes all the divine benedictions.


5.     To fully involve yourself and your employees in your business and give them their rights openheartedly. as they are your organs in the promotion of your business, and deal with them quite complacently.


6.   Not to apply undue pressure over the borrowers while he is in financial strait, because our Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has said:


"One who alleviate any agony from any Muslim, Allah shall alleviate from him his agonies on the Dooms Day".


7.     To be very particular in weighing and measuring i.e. to adopt the utmost honesty while you weigh to others or from others. Allah says :


"Evil will be for the defrauders who when they are measured they take upto the mark. But when they measure or weigh for them they incur to them loss. Do they not think that they are to be resurrected for a drastic Day, the Day When all the people shall stand before the Lord of the Universes."


It is narrated by Anas Bin Malik (R.A.) " that an Ansari follower came to Prophet (P.B.U.H.) asking him for some thing. He (P.B.U.H) questioned: Have you left any thing in your house The follower replied, Yes: a rough cloth, some of which is to be put on, and some of which is to be floored with, and a bowl in which we drink water. The prophet (P.B.U.H.) ordered him to bring them forth. He complied with. The Prophet auctioned both the objects in two dirhams and ordered him to go to his house with some edibles, purchased by one Dirham and to return to him with an axe, purchased by another one. He did and Prophet (P.B.U.H.) fixed with the axe a wooden butt and told : Go and cut woods : I am not to see your face for (15) days. He began to cut the woods and make of business of them and thus he got (10) Dirhams. He returned to the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) with this income so He told: purchase food with some amount and clothes with some amount. This is better for you than to be resurrected while the begging is etched in your face.


Once our Prophet was asked: Which earning is best? He (P.B.U.H.) told: The Work of the man with his own hand and each valid business.


In compliance with this Tradition, we should conduct our business, standing firmly on our religious grounds, and Promote our business with truth and certitude, and not indulge in false oath to dispose off our goods or to impress the customers. Our Prophet (P.B.U.H. ) told:


" There are three persons to whom Allah will neither talk nor look at, nor purify, and they will be prey to drastic torment. Among three the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) counted the person who commercialize his goods with false oath."


The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) also said:


"A true and devout businessman will be among Messengers, the veracious persons and the Martyrs."
