It is narrated on the authority of Amirul Mu'minin, Abu Hafs 'Umar bin al-Khattab, radiyallahu 'anhu, who said:

It is narrated on the authority of Amirul Mu'minin, Abu Hafs 'Umar bin al-Khattab, radiyallahu 'anhu, who said:
I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, say: "Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated." [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

Different humans have different intentions and motives in this life. Humans are going to get such results which will be based on their intentions. Many of these intentions are not known in this world therefore complete results would be achieved in the next world. If a person is intending to follow the right path of Islam and making required efforts then he will get the right path and have success.

If a person is following a worldly benefit and making efforts then he will get it. If a person is willing to find the desired life partner then he will get that after making struggle. Actions and motives are judged by struggle of humans. Allah (S.W.T.) is aware of the intentions of all humans and He can give the results to all humans on the basis of these intentions.

On the Day of Judgment all humans will be checked and they will get results on the basis of their intentions. If intentions and motives are good then good results are revealed through actions. Inside of humans is very important and if it is good then humans are going to perform well and in the right manner.

Those who are showing to do good tasks and they are not having real intensions then their tasks are not going to get them good results. Many people are doing good tasks for worldly benefits and they are showing that they are doing for not getting any cause. Such fake people are going to be disclosed and exposed in the next world and they will suffer from penalties.

Many people are deceiving others by their actions and they have different intentions from what they are performing. Such people must make corrections as they will be judged on the basis of their intentions. Islam is not in favor of dual characters which are adopted for cheating and deceiving others.

Islam is promoting and encouraging humans to have good motives in this life so that they could get good results in this life and in the next life. Motives are known by a person and these are hidden from others but Allah (S.W.T.) is aware of these motives and all the other things. Humans must keep in mind that their motives are leading them to get different types of results in this world.

Good motives are helpful for performing good and effectively. Bad motives are also influencing the actions of humans due to which bad results are obtained. When motives are improved then the whole system could be improved. Islam is focusing on the improvement of whole community therefore importance is given for the improvement of motives.

Motives are related with inside of humans and these are influencing actions. Inside can be improved by having good intentions. These intentions will be reflected in the form of actions in routine life and the whole community and society would be improved. Time in this life is limited therefore we must have good motives for getting success in this and other world.
