Holy Month of Ramadan

Ramadan is a holy month of Islamic calendar. It is a month when holy book, named Qura’an was revealed on a Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). In this month, Muslims try to do more and more good deeds. This month is a sort of practice for the Muslims so that they could maintain the practices throughout the year, as in Ramadan.

It is obligatory on Muslims to “Fast” in this holy month. Fasting is a willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast (dry fasting) is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period. Fasting practices may preclude intercourse and other activities as well as food.

By being hungry and thirsty for the longer period of time, Muslims become more compassionate for the needy people. They get motivated to feed the poor and needy people.

It is medically proven, that fasting is very much beneficial for health. Some scientists have indicated that a fast will cause white blood cells to break down during the fasting, resulting in new ones needing to be built when the fast is broken, resulting in the replacement of old damaged ones.

After fasting, people get to know the importance of food which is ordinary for them in the rest of the months. By knowing the importance of food, they become more concerned about not to waste the food. They do more charity work.

To what extent is money a motivator for employees?


Majority of professionals believe that employees are likely to over-report the importance of pay in employee surveys. However, research suggests the opposite is actually true.

The human brain can be influenced by money, but we have no precise sensory organ for the most intricate calculations.

Money motivates the employees, somehow as if everyone gets the same treatment, it no longer explains the difference between the participants. If the employee is financially interested, then he might become the job-maniac.

The effervescent worker who is more focused and hardworking than others and has been treated equally as other workers then this type of treatment must be the greatest blow to his vanity and despite of his abnegation, he will stop doing work devotedly.

Employees want their devotion and contribution to be recognized.

“Employees can be motivated by money as well as by simply saying thank you. This treatment seems to be very powerful. Praise employees whenever catch the employees while doing something right.”

  Frederick Herzberg, clinical psychologist and pioneer of ‘job enrichment’, discussed the ambiguity of the salary issue, and according to him, money is not a motivator.

“Pay will do little to motivate performance in systems where people receive similar pay increases regardless of individual or firm performance”.

Most Nongovernment employees are ostensibly paid on the basis of merit, examination of most companies’ pay reveals little differentiation in raises between average and superior performers.

Jurgensen ranked pay fifth in importance for men, and seventh in importance to women.


For most of the people, there are more sustaining motivators than money. Surveys show that pay actually came fifth in the reasons people gave for leaving their jobs.
