A Person abiding by Allah’s Order

An-Nu'man bin Bashir (Radhi Allahu Anhu) said that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) gave a speech in which he said, while pointing to his ears with two of his fingers,

"The parable of the person abiding by Allah's order and restrictions in comparison to those who violate them, or sit idle while they are being violated, is that of those who drew lots for their seats in a boat. Some of them got seats in the lower part, which is the most rough and worst part, and the others in the upper. When the former needed water, they had to go up to bring water and that troubled the others, so they said, `Let us make a hole in our share of the ship and get water, saving those who are above us from troubling them, so, if the people in the upper part let the others do what they suggested, all the people of the ship would be destroyed, but if they prevented them, both parties would be safe."
