Intention. ” let him work righteousness ” – means, that is in accordance with the laws of Allaah.

Intention.

” let him work righteousness ” – means, that is in accordance with the laws of Allaah.

No act of worship will be accepted from a Muslim unless it meets two basic conditions:

1 – Sincerity of intention towards Allaah, may He be exalted. This means that the aims of the person in his words and deeds, both outward and inward, should be to seek the Countenance of Allaah alone.

2 – It should be in accordance with the ways in which Allaah has ordained that He be worshipped only. That is achieved by following the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and what he taught, and shunning anything that goes against that, and not introducing any new acts or forms of worship that have not been narrated in proven reports from him (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

The evidence for these two conditions is the verse in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

” So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord”

[al-Kahf 18:110]

Ibn Katheer (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

” So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord” – means His reward

” let him work righteousness ” – means, that is in accordance with the laws of Allaah.

” and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord” – means the deed by which is sought the Countenance of Allaah alone, with no partner or associate.

These are the two features of the deed that is acceptable:

  1. It must be sincerely for the sake of Allaah alone, and
  2. It must be in accordance with the sharee’ah of the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). End quote.
