A NAS A WEEK - 1 MUHARRAM 1430H

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]
