Intentions and Pardah

I collected some more ahadith and quranic quotes. These are about the importance of intentions and pardah (veil).

Vol 1, Book 1. Revelation.
Hadith 001. (Shahi Bukhari)
Narrated By 'Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the INTENTIONS and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for."

Vol 3, Book 34. Sales And Trade.
Hadith 329. (Shahi Bukhari)
Narrated By 'Aisha: Allah's Apostle said, "An army will invade the Ka'ba and when the invaders reach Al-Baida', all the ground will sink and swallow the whole army." I said, "O Allah's Apostle! How will they sink into the ground while amongst them will be their markets (the people who worked in business and not invaders) and the people not belonging to them?" The Prophet replied, "all of those people will sink but they will be resurrected and judged according to their INTENTIONS."

Vol 1, Book 4. Ablutions (Wudu').
Hadith 148. (Shahi Bukhari)
Narrated By 'Aisha: The wives of the Prophet used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqia at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. 'Umar used to say to the Prophet "Let your wives be VEILed," but Allah's Apostle did not do so. One night Sauda bint Zam'a the wife of the Prophet went out at 'Isha' time and she was a tall lady. 'Umar addressed her and said, "I have recognized you, O Sauda." He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Al-Hijab (the observing of VEILs by the Muslim women) may be revealed. So Allah revealed the verses of "Al-Hijab" (A complete body cover excluding the eyes).

Surah/Chapter 002 - Al-Baqarah. Verse 225.
English Translation (The Noble Qur'an)
Allah will not take you to task for that which unINTENTIONal in your oaths. But He will take you to task for that which your hearts have garnered. Allah is Forgiving, Clement.

Surah/Chapter 024 - An-Nûr. Verse 31.
English Translation (The Noble Qur'an)
And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their VEILs over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands or fathers or husbands fathers, or their sons or their husbands' sons, or their brothers or their brothers' sons or sisters sons, or their women, or their slaves, or male attendants who lack vigor, or children who know naught of women's nakedness. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And turn unto Allah together, O believers, in order that ye may succeed.

I am not writing these emails just for fun. These are for others to follow these ahadiths as I can read these and follow them secretly myself so please try to follow them.

Many of you must have heard the stories of the people of 'Aad, Thamud and other tribes. They kept on disobeying Allah ,even though their messenger was sent to them, and Allah's wrath came on them. Our messenger had also been sent to us and has left for us the Quran but we are not following it and obeying Allah completely so eventually Allah's wrath might come on us. May Allah save us from His torment.

By the way, the last ayat given in this email is one of the
ayat-e-sajda so whoever reads this email should perform sajda.

Again, I will tell you to forward this to someone who you think has not received this email and not to make this a victim of chain emails.

I got these from the same references that I told you except that I used another software called the Noble Quran. If anyone of you wants the softwares directly from me, email me and I will send them to you.

Let not the free disposal (and influence) of the disbelievers throughout the land deceive you.
A brief enjoyment; then, their abode is Hell; and worst indeed is that place for rest.
But, for those who fear their Lord, are Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise); therein are they to dwell (forever), an entertainment from Allah; and that which is with Allah is the bestfor Al-Abrar (the pious believers of Islamic Monotheism).
And there are certainly, among the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians), those who believe in Allah and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before Allah. They do not sell the Verses of Allah for a little price, for them is a reward with their Lord. Surely, Allah is Swift in account.
O you who believe! Endure and be more patient (than your enemy), and guard your territory by stationing army units permanently at the places from where the enemy can attack you, and fear Allah so that you may be successful.
The Holy Quran (3:196-200)

O mankind! Verily, there has come to you a convincing proof (Prophet Muhammad (SAW) )from your Lord and We sent down to you a manifest light (this Quran).
So, as for those who believed in Allah and held fast to Him, He will admit them to His Mercy and Grace (i.e. Paradise) and guide them to Himself by a straight path.
The holy Quran (4:174-175)
