The Dignity of Labor By Prof Sabitu Olagoke
The dignity of labor is divine for human sustenance. Every creature has a license to the physiological needs for the upkeep of an individual on earth. For the early part of the individual's life, the individual would be dependent on others, most especially parents.
For the purpose of sufficiency, material resources ought to be evenly distributed to those who may need them to avoid inequality that may bring about insecurity for the purpose of survival among the people. Common senes dictate that needs must be sourced through legitimate means, not to become a victim of the law that regulates human affairs, since stealing, armed robbery, cheating on others, and other criminal acts are not only anti-divine but deviant also if the societal norms on the scale of justice, sins and crimes.

Putting up god work attitude with the spirit of working harder to meet up with the emerging demands and responsibilities without violating the golden rule of the dignity of labor is, therefore, sacrosanct.
The Holy Quran 11: 6 refers, '' There is no moving creature on earth, but its sustenance dependent on Allah: They knoweth its resting place and its temporary deposit: all is in a clear record.'' This statement implies that every stage of human creation and life cycle would become a rival material of destiny and destination importance starting from the gestation period, child-rearing, and natural nurturing of the cradle/adolescence stage to the ultimate period of adulthood. Ecclesiastes 5: 18-20 in the Holy Bible states ''Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.
19Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him the power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labor; this is the gift of God.
20For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart.''
For these verses, one must realize that the dignity of labor is divine, and through it only can God give a man the necessary tranquility of the mind.
Living beyond one's means is an invitation to chaos! We must all realize, according to the Holy Quran 13: 26 that ''Allah doth enlarge or grant by strict measure the Sustenance which He giveth to whom He pleaseth.......''
Avoid pursuing your goals through blatant impunity.
Let us enjoy the toil and the fruits of our labor through the due process of the fear of God in our daily activities.
