Intentions should always be checked before you do anything in your life. As we are advised by the Prophet SAW who said:
“Actions are but by intention and every man shall have but that which he intended. Thus he whose migration 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.” [Bukhari and Muslim]
This is especially true of any charitable act you do. There are many instances of people who give to charity only to be seen of others and unfortunately, when this happens, then the full reward can never be achieved.
So our advice is that whenever you do anything good in Islam, always start first by checking your intentions and understand that unless you do it purely for Allah’s sake, there is little reward in it for you.
May Allah SWT give us all the guidance to do things for his sake and his sake only, ameen.
