Question ID: 30739

Assalamu Alaykum
Dear Mufti
I’m currently in a business partnership with another 4 members. I’m also employed as a manager of the business. Business has been in operation for the last 6 years.Please advise on the following :
1) I handed in a resignation as a employee of the business, but have been told by the other partners that I cannot resign from the busniess. Can I be force to work?
2) Can I be forced to sell my share of the business ?
On inception nothing was documented nor signed. I was offered the post and accepted. On handing in my resignation I am told that I need to sell my share because I was hired as working shareholder.
Allah know best
