Actions are but by Intentions


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 wa sallam – say:

إِنَّمَا الْأعْمَالُ بِالنِّـيَّاتِ وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِىءٍ 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 وَأَبُو 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-Mugheerah ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhaaree and Abul-Husayn Muslim ibn al-Hajjaaj ibn Muslim al-Qushairee an-Naisaabooree, in their two Saheehs, which are the soundest of compiled books

Hadeeth No. 2

Explanation of Islaam, Eemaan, and Ihsaan

عَنْ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ أَيْضًا قَالَ
Also on the authority of `Umar – Radiyallaahu`anhu - who said:

بَيْنَمَا نَحْنُ جُلُوسٌ عِنْدَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ
"One day we were sitting with the Messenger of Allaah - Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam:

إِذْ طَلَعَ عَلَيْنَِا رَجُلٌ شَدِيدُ بَيَاضِ الثِّيَابِ شَدِيدُ سَوَادِ الشَّعْرِ
"When there approached a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black.

لاَ يُرَى عَلَيْهِ أَثَرُ السَّفَرِ وَلاَ يَعْرِفُهُ مِنَّا أَحَدٌ
"No signs of travel were apparent on him, and none of us knew him.

حَتَّى جَلَسَ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَأَسْنَدَ رُكْبَتَيْهِ إِلَى رُكْبَتَيْهِ وَوَضَعَ كَفَّيْهِ عَلَى فَخِذَيْهِ وَقَالَ: يَا مُحَمَّدُ أَخْبِرْنِي عَنِ الإِسْلاَمِ
"He walked up and sat down in front of the Prophet - Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam -, resting his knees against his knees (the Prophet’s- Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam) and placing the palms of his hands on his thighs and said: 'O Muhammad, tell me about Islaam.'

فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: الإِسْلاَمُ أَنْ تَشْهَدَ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ، وَتُقِيمَ الصَّلاَةَ، وَتُؤْتِيَ الزَّكَاةَ، وَتَصُومَ رَمَضَانَ، وَتَحُجَّ الْبَيْتَ إِنِ اسْتَطَعْتَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلاً
"So the Messenger of Allaah - Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam – said: 'Al-Islaam is to testify that there is no god worthy of being worshipped in truth except Allaah, and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, to establish the prayer, to give the Zakaat (obligatory charity), to fast Ramadaan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House (i.e. the Ka`bah in Makkah), if you are able to do so.'

قَالَ: صَدَقْتَ. فَعَجِبْنَا لَهُ يَسْأَلُهُ وَيُصَدِّقُهُ. قَالَ: فَأَخْبِرْنِي عَنِ الْإِيمَانِ
"He said: 'You have spoken truthfully.' We were amazed at his asking him and saying that he had spoken truthfully. He (the man) said: 'So tell me about Eemaan.'

قَالَ: أَنْ تُؤْمِنَ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلاَئِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَتُؤْمِنَ بِالْقَدَرِ خَيْرِهِ وَشَرِّهِ
"He (Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam)said: 'Eemaan is to believe in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day and to believe in the Divine Decree - the good of it and the evil of it.'

قَالَ: صَدَقْتَ. قَالَ: فَأَخْبِرْنِي عَنِ الْإِحْسَانِ
“He said: ‘You have spoken truthfully. So tell me about Ihsaan.’

قَالَ: أَنْ تَعْبُدَ اللَّهَ كَأَنَّكَ تَرَاهُ فَإِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ تَرَاهُ فَإِنَّهُ يَرَاكَ
“He (Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘It is that you worship Allaah as if you can see Him, And if you can’t see Him (i.e. worship Him as if you see Him), then (knowing that) verily, He sees you.’

قَالَ: فَأَخْبِرْنِي عِنِ السَّاعَةِ
"He (the man) said: 'So tell me about the Hour. (i.e. The Last Day).'

قَالَ: مَا الْمَسْؤُولُ عَنْهَا بِأَعْلَمَ مِنَ السَّائِلِ
“He (Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘The one being questioned knows no more about it than the questioner.’

قَالَ: فَأَخْبِرْنِي عِنْ أَمَارَاتِهَا
“He said: ‘Then tell me about it’s signs.’

قَالَ: أَنْ تَلِدَ الْأَمَةُ رَبَّتَهَا وَأَنْ تَرَى الْحُفَاةَ الْعُرَاة َ الْعَالَةَ رِعَاءَ الشَّاءِ يَتَطَاوَلُونَ فِي الْبُنْـيُانِ
“He (Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress, and that you will see the barefooted, naked and destitute shepherds competing in constructing lofty buildings.’

ثُمَّ انْطَلَقَ فَلَبِثْتُ مَلِيًّا ثُمَّ قَالَ: يَا عُمَرُ أَتَدْرِي مَنِ السَّائِلُ؟
“Then he left and I stayed for some time. Then he (Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘O `Umar, do you know who the questioner was?’

قُلْتُ: اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَعْلَمُ. قَالَ: فَإِنَّهُ جِبْرِيلُ أَتَاكُمْ يُعَلِّمُكُمْ دِينَكُمْ
“I said: ‘Allaah and His Messenger know best.’ He (Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘It was Jibreel who came to teach your religion.’

Islaam is built upon Five Pillars

عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَانِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ
On the authority of 'Abee `Abdir-Rahmaan `Abdillaahi ibn `Umar ibn al-Khattaab – Radiyallaahu`anhumaa - who said: "I heard the Messenger of Allaah - Sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam- say:

بُنِيَ الْإِسْلاَمُ عَلَى خَمْسٍ
'Al-Islaam is built on five:

شَهَادَةِ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ، وَإِقَامِ الصَّلاًةِ، وَإِيتَاءِ الزَّكَاةِ وَحَجِّ البَّيْتِ، وَصَومِ رَمَضَانَ
'To testify that none has the right to be worshipped in truth except Allaah, and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, to establish the prayer, to pay the Zakaat, to make pilgrimage to the House, and to fast Ramadaan.'"

Deeds are by their Final Actions

عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَانِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ
On the authority of 'Abee `Abdir-Rahmaan `Abdillaahi ibn Mas`ood – Radiyallaahu`anhu - who said:

حَدَّثَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَهُوَ الصَّادِقُ الْمَصْدُوقِ
“The Messenger of Allaah - Sallallaahu`alayhi wa sallam – and he is the truthful, the believed; narrated to us:

إِنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ يُجْمَعُ خَلْقُهُ فِي بَطْنِ أُمِّهِ فِي أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْمًا نُطْفَةً
'Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother's womb for forty days in the form of a nutfah (a drop),

ثُمَّ يَكُونُ عَلَقَةً مِثْلَ ذَلِكَ ثُمَّ يَكُونُ مُضْغَةً مِثْلَ ذَلِكَ
'Then he becomes an `alaqah (clot of blood) for a like period, then a mudghah (morsel of flesh) for a like period,

ثَمَّ يُرْسَلُ إِلَيْهِ الْمَلَكُ فَيَنفُخُ فِيهِ الرُّوحَ
'Then there is sent to him the angel who blows his soul into him

وَيُؤْمَرُ بِأَرْبَعِ كَلِمَاتٍ بِكَتْبِ رِزْقِهِ وَأَجَلِهِ وَعَمَلِهِ وَشَقِيٌّ أَو ْسَعِيدٌ
'And who is commanded with four matters: to write down his rizq (sustenance), his life span, his actions, and whether he will be happy or unhappy (i.e. whether or not he will enter Paradise).

فَوَ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لاَ إِلَهَ غَيْرُهُ إِنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ لَيَعْمَلُ بِعَمَلِ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ حَتَّى مَا يَكُونَ بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَهَا إِلاَّ ذِرَاعٌ فَيَسـْبِقُ عَلَيْهِ الْكِتَابُ فَيَعْمَلُ بِعَمَلِ أَهْلِ النَّارِ فَيَدْخُلُهَا
'By the One, other than Whom there is no god, verily one of you performs the actions of the people of Paradise until there is but an arms length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him, and so he acts with the actions of the people of the Hellfire and thus enters it

وَإِنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ لَيَعْمَلُ بِعَمَلِ أَهْلِ النَّارِ حَتَّى مَا يَكُونَ بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَهَا إِلاَّ ذِرَاعٌ فَيَسـْبِقُ عَلَيْهِ الْكِتَابُ فَيَعْمَلُ بِعَمَلِ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ فَيَدْخُلُهَا

The Halaal is Clear and the Haraam is Clear



عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ النُّعْمَانِ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ
On the authority of 'Abee `Abdillaah an-Nu`maan ibn Basheer - Radiyallaahu `anhumaa - who said: "I heard the Messenger of Allaah - Sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam - say:

إِنَّ الْحَلاَلَ بَيِّنٌ وَإِنَّ الْحَرَامَ بَيِّنٌ وَبَيْنَهُمَا أُمُورٌ مُشْتَبِهَاتٌ لا يَعْلَمُهُنَّ كَثِيرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ
'That which is lawful is clear and that which is unlawful is clear, and between the two of them are doubtful matters about which many people have no knowledge of.

فَمَنِ اتَّقَى الشُّبُهَاتِ فَقَدِ اسْتَبْرَأَ لِدِينِهِ وَعِرْضِهِ
'Thus, he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honor,

وَمَنْ وَقَعَ فِي الشُّبُهَاتِ وَقَعَ فِي الْحَرَامِ
'But he who falls into doubtful matters, falls into that which is unlawful,

كَالرَّاعِي يَرْعَى حَوْلَ الْحِمَى يُوشِكُ أَنْ يَرْتَعَ فِيهِ
'Like the shepherd who pastures around a sanctuary, all but grazing therein.

أَلاَ وَإِنَّ لِكُلِّ مَلِكٍ حِمًى أَلاَ وَإِنَّ حِمَى اللَّهِ مَحَارِمُهُ
'Truly every king has a sanctuary, and truly Allaah's sanctuary is His prohibitions.

أَلاَ وَإِنَّ فِي الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إِذَا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ
'Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh, which, if it be whole, all the body is whole,

وَإِذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ
'And if it is corrupt, all of the body is corrupt,

أَلاَ وَهِيَ الْقَلْبُ
'Truly, it is the heart'."

عَنْ ابْنِ مَسْعُودٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عِنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّي اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
On the authority of Ibn Mas`ood - Radiyallaahu `anhu – who said: “The Messenger of Allaah - Sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam –said:

لاَ يَحِلُّ دَمُ امْرِئٍ مُسْلِمٍ إِلاَّ بِإِحْدَى ثَلاَثٍ
‘It is not permissible to spill the blood of a Muslim except in three (cases):

الثَّـيِّبُ الزَّانِي، وَالنَّفْسُ بِالنَّفْسِ، وَالتَّارِكُ لِدِينِهِ الْمُفَارِقُ لِلْجَمَاعَةِ
‘The married person who commits adultery, a life for a life, and the one who forsakes his religion and separates from the community’.”
