This video introduces and begins our regular series on Hadith Reminders. In each short video we will discuss some points of benefit and lessons we can derive from the comprehensive words of our beloved Messenger Muhammad (saw).
First Hadeeth: On the authority of 'Umar bin Khattaab [may Allaah be pleased with him] it is related that the Prophet [peace be upon him] said:
إنَّمَا الْأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ، وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى، فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ فَهِجْرَتُهُ إلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ، وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ لِدُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوْ امْرَأَةٍ يَنْكِحُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إلَيْهِ
"Indeed, actions are [judged] by the intention, so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration [hijrah] was to Allaah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allaah 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."
[Saheeh ul-Bukhaaree : 1]
Second Hadeeth: On the authority of 'Aa`ishah [may Allaah be pleased with her] it is related that the Prophet [peace be upon him] said:
من عمل عملا ليس عليه أمرنا فهو رد
''Whoever does an action not based on our teaching would have it rejected"
