The value of the intention …

Salaam All,

InshaAllah I hope you are well.

We can all just say and throw “purify you intentions” to each other, but to really know the POWER and VIRTUE of these words is true understanding to avoid minor shirk. There is a reason why Sahih Al Bukhari started his book with a hadeeth on INTENTIONS, rather than anything else:

Narrated By ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA): I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for.”

SAHIH AL-BUKHARI, THE BOOK OF REVELATION, HADEETH 1

The following is a small talk by SHEIKH YASER QADHI on the
subject:

Remember to protect to check your intentions in the three stages of every action:

  • BEFORE the act
  • DURING the act
  • AFTER the act

InshaAllah may we all be protected from the BLACKNESS and EVIL of RIYAA, AMEEN!

Perfection is of Allah and Islam, and the errors are my own.

JazaakumAllah Khairun,

Shoaib.
