“My son, intend good.”

One day, ‘Abdullah, the son of al-Imam Ahmad, said to his father: “Advise me, father.” So, he said: “My son, intend good. As long as you intend good, you’ll always be in a state of good.

Ibn Muflih comments: “This is a great piece of advice – easy for the questioned, easy to understand & implement for the questioner. Whoever applies it will have constant & continuous reward due to its constant & continuous nature. This applies to all of the actions of the heart required by the Shari’ah, whether in relation to the Creator or the creation.”

[‘al-Adab ash-Shar’iyyah’; 1/102]
