    On the authority of ameer ul-mumineen (the commander of the faithful), abu hafs Umar ibn al-Khattab (may All be pleased with him), who said:
    I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say, “Actions are but by intentions and every man shall have only that which he intended. Thus he whose migration (hijrah from Makkah to Madina) was for Allah and His Messenger, his migration was for Allah and His Messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated.”
    It is related by the two Imams of the scholars of hadeeth, Abu Abdullah Muhammad ibn Ismael ibn Ibraheem ibn al-Mugheera ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhari and Abu-l-Husain Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj ibn Muslim al-Qushairee an-Naisaboree, in their two Saheehs, which are the soundest of compiled books (i.e., the most truthful books after the Book of Allah, since the Qur’an is not compiled).
    The hadith is emphasizing on migration, it was discovered that this migration was not the first migration.The prophet ( had migrated to Abyssina and Tahif
    Explanation of the hadith
    The prophet’s saying ‘the rewards for deeds depend upon the intention’ implies restriction in judging any deed done by anyone, except on the basis of one’s intention. Base on this phrase, the intention behind any deed may make it valid, invalid, and acceptable or rejected and result in the doer being rewarded or punished.
    What is Intention? Literarily, it is the determination and will to follow a course of action. Technically, according to the scholars of shariah, intention may have one or two senses. Firstly, the distinction between one act of worship and another, as specifying the fasting of Ramadan or another type of fasting. It is also different acts of worship and other undertaken habitually, such as ritual bathing. Secondly, clarifying the aim in which other work is based, showing whether it is meant for the sake of Allah and others.

    Verbal expression
    It is the expression of what is determined in one’s mind.
    About Sincerity
    Sahl bin Abdullah said, “Nothing is more difficult for human nature than being sincere because it has no share in it.
    Yusuf bin Al-Hussein Ar-Razy said, “Sincerity is the most precious thing in this life. I am used to striving hard to rid my heart of boastfulness, but unfortunately it appears as if it were planted in it in different colours.
