Intent in Islam

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Intention (niyyah) in Islam refers to the spirit of doing deeds through which they may become religiously valid. Sincere intention turns permissible deeds into acts of worship. [1]


Like Tao in traditional Chinese medicine, which is the way to rich Qi energy, intent somehow is the way for all Muslims to reach unique God and prophet Muhammad. In Islam, whatever that is done must be purely for God to be accepted by him and gives rewards for it. Even immigration from holy Mecca city to the newborn city Medina, (because of disturbance of non-believers) had rewards for only those people who did it for God's sake and his prophet when Muhammad was alive. Intention for human habits always exist, such as eating when human is hungry, the intention is to eat or when he is thirsty he intends to drink to fulfill his needs.

Here we understand that whatever a Muslim does has to be for God's sake to make him happy in the world and hereafter. Our deeds have to be right and have to be for God's happiness.

Ritualism in Islam[edit]

According to Islam life is real and human is real as well. Muslims believe, life is a gift which has been donated to them. Moreover, everybody can figure out the religion as much as his understanding to God. A message of religion can be represented by dancing, symbols, singing, books and prayers.

Islam is not only a religion but it is the way of life too. Many orders of Islam encourages Muslims to eat the clean food and chew the food as much as possible. Muslims do praying at a fixed times for saying thanks to God and have sport practices to discharge their negative energy. Making Haj for all Muslims is mandatory. Maybe one reason is gathering. Kaaba is like a cube and all Muslims are like electrons who gather and walk around the center or like an atom for definite amounts.

Holy ablution of Muslims and baptism in Christianity and other bathing in different religions is to be clean when worshiping God.

Idea of Islam about God[edit]

As holy Qur'an has mentioned, God is hidden and you may not touch or see Him. It is very simple to worship him. We definitely can observe His miracles from his prophets. God says that I don't have any start and any end. If you pay attention there are infinitely many radius's and diameters in a circle. We could never draw it completely. Human exists, material exists, air exists (and almost up to the end of our life we already have used our lungs for 500 billion times). However, we are not able to see air but we intensively need it. God in one example is like that too.

Maximum numbers that God taught us[edit]

We have basic numbers between 0 and 9. Millions, Billions, Trillions and any numbers are created by mixing these numbers like 10 and so on. We cannot have numbers more than 9 unless we mix them (Because God taught us up to 9, as basic). Ten is created by mixing 1 and 0. Even, in 9.1 again 1 comes from original 0 to 9. Short term memory can also saves maximum 9 items for a few seconds. Those who can learn more than that amount, they memorize things as group of subsets. Muslims believe in that, Holy Qur’ran also pays attention to this matter.

Number 4 and number 7[edit]

God mentions that, "I have measured your needs in 4 days and I have created the earth and skies in 6 steps and in the 7th step I have dominated to everything, in holy Qur'an". Even, God mentions in holy Qur'an that sky has been created from seven layers. Moreover, earth has been created from seven layers too. We understand that our sky has been created from seven layers and earth too according to holy Qur'an. Many years ago Muslim's holy book Qur'an talked about this. In many sections of Muslim's book Qur'an, God talks about the layers differently, 7 skies and 7 earths.
