Sahih Al-Bukhari – Volume 1 – (1) Chapter. (P.45)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

1 – THE BOOK OF REVELATION

And the Statement of Allah: “Verily, We have sent the revelation to you (O Muhammad, peace be upon him) as We sent the revelation to Noah and the Prophets after him.”

1. Narrated ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah’s Messenger, peace be upon him, saying, “The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.  So whoever emigrates for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration will be for what he emigrated for.” Note: The Prophet, peace be upon him, said this on the occasion of someone’s emigration from Makkah to Al-Madina not for the sake of Islamic Cause but to marry a woman who had stipulated that he should emigrate if he wanted to marry her.  Anyhow, this Hadith implies a general principle, i.e. one is rewarded for his deeds according to his real intentions and not according to his actual deeds which might be good in themselves but were motivated by an ill intention.
