Rectify our niat (intentions)


Perhaps we’ve heard the hadith about intentions or the first part of the hadith so many times that it became like an everyday saying that doesn’t give any effects to our hearts anymore. Unexpectedly, the reminder about our intentions given by Sheikh Muiz Bukhary has moved me. He covered the full hadith but I don’t have it so I’ll just write about the first part which is

انما الأعمال بالنيات

Actions are but by intentions

Our actions are bound by our intentions. The main reason of our actions should be for the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. All other reasons are secondary. This is like a fundamental principle that needs to be set in the beginning of any amal. We want our good deeds to have weight on the day of judgement

Therefore, we need to rectify our intentions for the sake of Allah Ta’ala and Allah Ta’ala alone. All other intentions should come after thisMay Allah makes it easy for us. Ameen
