Dealing with your Intention

leave a comment »

It is reported that Sufyan ath-Thawri (rahimahullaah) said,

{{ مَا عَالَجْتُ شَيْئًا أَشَدَّ عَلَيَّ مِنْ نِيَّتِي؛ لِأَنَّهَا تَنْقَلِبُ عَلَيَّ }}

“I have never dealt with (treated/observed/constantly referred back to) anything more severe upon me than my intention, because it is always apt to change.”

[Source: Mentioned by Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali (rahimahullaah) in his book “Jaami’ al-‘Uloom wal-Hikam”, Volume 1 page 70, checked by Shaykh Shuaib al-‘Arnaoot

Also, Recorded by Abu Na’eem in his “Hilyat ul-Awliya”, (7/62), and in it is the word “Nafsee (myself)” instead of the word “Niyyatee (my intention)”]
