Lesson 1 - Hadeeth 1 Of Nawawi 40 - Intention - Quiz

Welcome to the first quiz in this series of 40 quizzes, each only 10 questions long. We plan to help you to learn the famous book of hadeeths by Imaam An-Nawawi, little by little. To be able to answer all the questions, it may help you to read the Explanation of Nawawi's 40 Hadeeths by Shyakh Al-Uthaymeen, available in English. If you are not memorising the hadeeths, then you might wish to skip the first two questions in each set. May Allaah help all those who intend to do good, grant them the ability to do righteous deeds and reward Read morethem abundantly.

      Intention

      Kindness

    • D.

      Fasting

    Correct Answer
    B. Intention
    Explanation
    A person is rewarded or punished based on his intention because intentions reflect the underlying motivations and desires behind one's actions. It is believed that the sincerity and purity of intentions play a crucial role in determining the moral value of an action. Good intentions are often considered virtuous and are more likely to lead to positive outcomes, while bad intentions can result in negative consequences. Therefore, one's intention is seen as a key factor in evaluating the moral worth of an individual's behavior.

    Actions can be ___________ or outward. Intention is an ______________ action; its place is in the heart. This hadeeth is the way of measuring the ___________ actions so it is half or worship. Which word would fill all three blanks? (Hint: DRAW IN is an anagram of the correct word.)

    Correct Answer
    inward
    Explanation
    The correct answer for all three blanks is "inward". The first blank refers to actions that are either inward or outward, implying that "inward" is one of the options. The second blank mentions intention as an example of an inward action, further supporting the use of "inward" in the first blank. The third blank states that the hadith is a way of measuring the blank actions, suggesting that the blank should be filled with a word that can describe both inward and outward actions. Therefore, "inward" is the appropriate word to fill all three blanks.

  • 3. 

    It is possible to do an action without an intention.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because intention is a mental state that precedes and motivates an action. In order to perform an action, there must be some level of intention or purpose behind it. Without intention, actions would be random and lack purpose or direction. Therefore, it is not possible to do an action without an intention.
