    A poor porter (one who carries goods for others in the market and throughout the city) stops to take a rest on the bench outside the gate of a rich merchant's house, where he complains to Allah about the injustice of a world which allows the rich to live in ease while he must work hard and yet remain poor. The owner of the house hears about this and requests to speak to the porter, finding that they are both named Sinbad. The rich Sinbad tells the poor Sinbad that he became wealthy "by fortune and fate" in the course of seven wondrous voyages, which he then proceeds to tell.
