“Actions are but by intentions and every man will have only what he intended.” – Prophet Muhammad ﷺ [Sahih Muslim & Bukhari]
Asalamu Alaykum – Peace Be Upon You,
It’s been years.. literally.. years.. I haven’t posted on this site since April 2012 – It’s now June 2017 – SubhanAllah (Exalted is God) how time flies.
Anyhow, I hope you’re all in the best health and eman (faith) Insha’Allah (God willing).
I thought I’d get back into blogging – why? I hear you ask. Well.. I guess I need to keep a track of myself. A space to keep my thoughts, and Insha’Allah a place to remember Allah.
I’ve chosen to begin my post with what I believe is the pinnacle of faith, the core of every action, the one thing that determines the purity of your soul; your intentions.
Intentions can turn dirt into gold.
Something so small, so hidden – yet it carries the weight of paradise or hellfire. Something so beautiful if kept pure, the secret between you and God.
I don’t believe that intentions are solely to do with religion and worship, but that it affects you in your character, the thing you stand for, the vibes you release.
Keeping a pure heart will relieve stress; for example; if you have bad intentions, plotting and planning against a person – your heart will not rest, it will always be preoccupied with how it can take revenge, or how it can make someone else miserable, it carries a huge weight with it, this in turn making you the miserable one as a pose to who you intended the ill for. Being light hearted is by far easier, less stressful, more rewarding in this life and the next, and I truly believe it will exert from you good vibes;
Take 5 seconds to purify your intention before an action, and bring your heart from the dark into the light.
