Deeds are but by intentions

The Hadith means that action are juded according to the motivations behind them.The validity or goodness of action depends upon the intention associated them.

The reward or punishment of an action is not only determined by the nature of the action itself but also according to the intentions linked with it.

Therefore intention is the most important factor for our actions.And Allah Almighty looks first into our hearts to judge our action.One can say the intention is the spirit of the action.The action is accepted or rejected according to what is in our hearts.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said :” Allah does not look at your bodies, nor does He look at your appearance, but He looks at your hearts “.
