Once there was a king who told some of his workers to dig a pond. Once the pond was dug, the king made an announcement to his people saying that one person from each household was to bring a glass of milk during the night and pour it into the pond. So, the pond should be full of milk by the morning. After receiving the order, everyone went home. One man prepared to take the milk during the night. He thought that since everyone would bring milk, be could just bide a glass of water an J pour it inside the pond. Because it will be dark at night, no one will notice. So he quickly went and poured the water into the pond and came hack. In the morning, the king came to visit the pond and to his surprise the pond was only filled with water! What happened was that everyone thought,

"I don't have to put the milk, someone else will do it."
Dear friends, when it comes to helping the religion of Allah t do not think that others will take care of it. Rather, it stairs from you. If you don't do it, no one else will do it. So, change yourself to the way of Allah to serve Him and that will make the difference.
