Have you checked your intentions lately? Intentions in Islam carry a lot of weight – and can be your ticket to Jannah or Jahannum, depending on what you intend when you do good deeds.

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah RA, who said:I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say:

The first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I fought for you until I died a martyr. He will say: You have lied – you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

[Another] will be a man who has studied [religious] knowledge and has taught it and who used to recite the Quran. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I studied [religious] knowledge and I taught it and I recited the Quran for Your sake. He will say: You have lied – you did but study [religious] knowledge that it might be said [of you]: He is learned. And you recited the Quran that it might be said [of you]: He is a reciter. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

[Another] will be a man whom Allah had made rich and to whom He had given all kinds of wealth. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I left no path [untrodden] in which You like money to be spent without spending in it for Your sake. He will say: You have lied – you did but do so that it might be said [of you]: He is open-handed. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.

[Muslim & Tirmidhi]

Therefore, if you want to be one of those whom Allah TRULY loves, do good deeds ONLY for Allah’s sake. Always, always check your intentions first and rectify them accordingly. It may well be the one thing that saves you on the day of Judgement. May Allah SWT make us all from amongst those who do deeds sincerely for Allah’s sake and His sake alone. Ameen.
