There is an employer who does not give workers their salaries except upon their departure for their countries every year or every two years.
Employees have no other choice but to accept that due to scarcity of work opportunities and their need for money. What is the ruling in this regard?
(Part No. 15; Page No. 127)
The basic rule is that employers pay workers' salaries at the end of every month. This is what is well-known among people. But if they agree that salaries are paid on a yearly basis or at the end of every two years, there will be no harm in doing so. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said in the authentically reported Hadith:
"Muslims are bound by their conditions..."
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
