Audio Khutba: Ikhlaas (Sincerity); Islam’s Most Important Principle, By Shaykh Luqman Ahmad


The primary condition for Allah’s acceptance of a good deed is ikhlaas (absolute sincerity). And when it comes to ikhlaas in the religion of Islam, the intention is the foundation. Even before we consider whether the deed is done correctly or not, we have to take into consideration it’s intention. If the intention is sound, the deed is on its way to being sound. However, if the intention is insincere, then the deed will never be sound, no matter how it looks or feels.This is based upon the hadith of the Prophet (SAWS), “verily deeds are reckoned according to the intention, and every person shall get that which he has intended[1].
