Niyyah (نِيّة) is a commonly used Arabic word in the Muslim world meaning "Intention".[1] That the importance of "intention" is paramount in Islamic observances is clear from the very first hadith of the compilation "Sahih Bukhari" which states that "definitely all actions are (based) on intentions."
