The Intention Is In The Heart

June 11, 2013 § 1 Comment

The Muhaddith Shaykh al-Albaanee (rahimahullaah ta’aala) explains in the original Sifatus-Salaah that when the Prophet salAllaahu alayhi wa sallam would begin his prayer, he did so by saying “Allaahu Akbar”. This is an indication that the Messenger salAllaahu alayhi wa sallam did not say anything before the takbeer like pronouncing the niyyah (intention), like some people say: “I pray for Allaah, such and such salaah, such and such number of rak’ah, facing the qiblah, etc” And they say this in Arabic or in their own languages. All of this is bid’ah (innovation) and has no foundation in the Sunnah! 

» Know, the niyyah is the intent and the decision to do an action and its place is in the heart! (So, we do not pronounce the niyyah verbally.)
