Once a king ordered a pond dug. Once it was complete, the king made an announcement to his people saying that one person from each household must bring a glass of milk during the night and pour it into the pond. The pond should be full of milk by the morning.
After receiving the order, everyone went home. One man thought that since everyone will bring milk, he could just hide a glass of water and pour inside the pond. As it will be dark at night, no one will notice. So he quickly went and poured the water in the pond and came back. In the morning, the king came to visit the pond and to his surprise it was only filled with water! Everyone had thought, ‘I don't have to put milk, someone else will do it.’
When it comes to help the Religion of Allah, and to make a change in society, do not think that others will take care of it. Rather, it starts from you; if you don’t do it, no one else will.
