Narrated 'Umar: I heard the Prophet saying, "The reward of deeds depends on the intentions, so whoever emigrated for the worldly benefits or to marry a woman, his emigration was for that for which he emigrated, but whoever emigrated for the Sake of Allah and His Apostle, his emigration is for Allah and His Apostle." [Hadith from Sahih Bukhari, Book No. 58: Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar), Hadith No. 238]

Yahya related to me from Malik that Yahya ibn Said said, "I have heard that by his good character a man can reach the degree of the one who stands in prayer at night and the one who is thirsty from fasting in the heat of the day." [Hadith from Malik's Muwatta', Book No. 47: Good Character, Hadith No. 47.1.6].
