“He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hand; and if he has not strength enough to do it, then he should do it with his tongue, and if he has not strength enough to do it, (even) then he should (abhor it) from his heart, and that is the least of faith.”

(Muslim, Iman, 78)

During a voyage, passengers were assigned quarters on either the upper or lower decks by a random selection process. Those residing on the lower deck faced the necessity of accessing the upper deck to fulfill their water requirements. However, in an attempt to minimize disruption to the occupants of the upper deck, a decision was made to cut a hole in the hull of the vessel...

The Prophet Muhammad (saw), who explained that one should not be passive in preventing evil through this simile, continued his words, elaborating on the consequences of inaction: “So, if the people in the upper part left the others do what they had suggested, all the people of the ship would be destroyed, but if they prevented them, both parties would be safe.” (Bukhari, Sharika, 6)

Aboard the vessel of existence, we, humankind, embark on a collective voyage towards the ultimate harbor, the Hereafter. Unlike a conventional ship, this vessel offers no opportunity to disembark or switch to another. Therefore, it is both our religious and human duty to protect this ship and to say “Stop!” to those who seek to breach its hull and jeopardize the well-being of all passengers.
