Actions Depend Upon Their Intentions
On the authority of the chief of the believers, Abu Hafs ' Umar ibn Al-Khattab (radi allahu anhu), who said:
I heard the Messenger of Allah (salla allahu alaihi wa salaam) saying: "The reward of actions depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has 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 a women in marriage, his migration was for that which he migrated." (Related by Bukharee and Muslim)
Assalaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakhatahu,
the following worksheets are designed to bring the focus of the young muslims/muslimahs in our communties back on Allah inshaAllah. So often, they are exposed to the haraam, even if by our own hands as parents. But they must realize for themselves the beauty of worshipping Allah, seeking his face, and good pleasure, that he is The Almighty and All-Wise alhamdulillah. And it is through His guidance that you can achieve absolute serenity, happiness, and inshaAllah Jannatul Firdous. There may not be a right or wrong answer in some of these questions, but remember there is always an outcome be it a positive one, or a negative one. Actions are by Intentions, and you shall be rewarded, or punished according to that, May Allah guide us all upon the straight path, ameen.
