Intention!

عَنْ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَبِي حَفْصٍ عُمَرَ ابْنِ 

   الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ

On the authority of the leader of the believers, ‘Abee Hafs `Umar ibn al-Khattaab –Radiyallaahu`anhu – who said:

سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ

“I heard the Messenger of Allaah –Sallallaahu`alayhi wasallam – say:

إِنَّمَا الْأعْمَالُ بِالنِّـيَّاتِ وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِيءٍ مَا

 نَوَى

‘Actions are but by intentions and every man shall have only that which he intended.

فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ

فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ

‘Thus he whose migration was for Allaah and His Messenger, his migration was for Allaah and His Messenger,

وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ لِدُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوِامْرَأَةٍ

 يَنْكِحُهَا

‘And he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage,

فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَاهَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ

‘His migration was for that for which he migrated.’”


رَوَاهُ إِمَامَا الْمُحَدِّثِينَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ مُحَمَّدُ

بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ

ابْنِ بَرْدِزْبَهْ الْبُخَارِيُّ

وَ أَبُو الْحُسَيْنِ مُسْلِمُ بْنُ الْحَجَّاجِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ

الْقُشَيْرِيُّ النَّيْسَابُوْرِيُّ فِي صَحِيحَيْهِمَا

 اللَّذَيْنِ هُمَا أَصَحُّ الْكُتُبِ الْمُصَنَّفَةِ

It is reported by the two Imaams of the scholars of Hadeeth, Aboo `Abdillaah Muhammad ibn Ismaa`eel ibn Ibraheem ibn al-Mugheera ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhaaree and Abool-Husayn Muslim ibn al-Hajjaaj ibn Muslim al-Qushairee an-Naisaabooree, in their two Saheehs, which are the soundest of compiled books

Note: Imam Sha’fee (Rahimullah) said about this hadeeth that it is one-third of knowledge

         Imam Ahmed (Rahimullah) said: Islam is built upon three hadeeths. One of ‘Umar (intentions), Ayesha (obligation to follow the Messenger, and one of ibn Basheer (between clear and unclear matters).
