    Actions are Judged by Motives

    By Mohammad Rafique Etesame

    It is narrated on the authority of Amirul Mu'minin, Abu Hafs 'Umar bin al-Khattab (ra) who said:

    I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: "Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated." [Bukhari & Muslim]

    This hadees reveals that we will get the good reward or punishment of our deeds at the Day of Judgment according to our motives. If our motive is, from our good deeds to be seen in the people and not for the sake of Allah, than we will get the punishment rather than the good reward by our good deeds. And if these actions had been done purely for Allah’s sake, than no doubt that reward will be the Paradise.

    So it is necessary that our motives by our good deeds should be only to please Allah Almighty and not for worldly things and to show the people. By this way, these will be lost and will get no reward.

    Re: Actions are Judged by Motives

    The primary focus should be to work in obedience to Allah and to be near to Allah 's pleasure and further from His wrath - even if there is intention of wordly benefit such as wages or the lawful ghanaim from the Quraish caravan, otherwise Allah would have banned wages and ghanaim, and worldly rewards, and the Prophet would have enforced such a ban.Let's be careful of making confusing statements that work to demoralise even the most dedicated people in Allah 's path.

    Al-Qasas 28:77

    وَٱبْتَغِ فِيمَآ ءَاتَىٰكَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلدَّارَ ٱلْءَاخِرَةَۖ وَلَا تَنسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ ٱلدُّنْيَاۖ وَأَحْسِن كَمَآ أَحْسَنَ ٱللَّهُ إِلَيْكَۖ وَلَا تَبْغِ ٱلْفَسَادَ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِۖ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُفْسِدِينَ

    English - Yusuf Ali

    "But seek, with the (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on thee, the Home of the Hereafter, nor forget thy portion in this world: but do thou good, as Allah has been good to thee, and seek not (occasions for) mischief in the land: for Allah loves not those who do mischief."

    English - Sahih International

    But seek, through that which Allah has given you, the home of the Hereafter; and [yet], do not forget your share of the world. And do good as Allah has done good to you. And desire not corruption in the land. Indeed, Allah does not like corrupters."
