Ikhlas,Quranic Ayats about sincerity of intention, meaning and Definition Translation of Al niyyeh Surah al Bayyinah ayah 5,Al hajj Ayah 37,Ali-Imran Ayah 29

Al Ikhlaas and Al Niyyeh 
Sincerity and Significance of Intentions and all Actions, Apparent and Hidden
In all actions and sayings, apparent and concealed we should do for Allah only No other intention for pleasing or showing anyone else should be there.......If it will be our Amaal will be wasted Rather counterproductive on day of Qiyamah. May Allah save from Riya and Give us Ikhlas e Niyah.

Allah the Most High declared:

They were commanded not, but that they should worship Allah and worship none but Him alone, and perform the prayer, and give in alms. For that is the Correct Religion
[Surah al-Bayyinah : Ayah 5].

It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him
[Surah al-Hajj : Ayah 37].

Say (0 Muhammad): Whether you conceal what is in your hearts or disclose it, Allah is aware of it
[Surah Ali-'Imraan : Ayah 29].

Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him), reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

"The deeds are considered by the intentions, and a person will get the reward according to his intention. So whoever emigrated for Allah and His Messenger, his emigration will be for Allah and His Messenger; and whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration would be for what he emigrated for". 

al-Niyyeh according to the the Scholars comprises of two definitions/meaning:

The First Meaning: al-Niyyeh refers to the different objectives [desired] in the performance
of the deed.
For example: Was the action performed for the sake of Allah alone, without an associate, or was
it performed partially for Allah and partially for other than him?
This defmition is the one which the People of Knowledge speak of in their works and their
utterances concerning al-Ikhlaas and it's consequence.

The Srcond Definition: al-Niyyeh differentiates between the various acts of worship.
For example: It distinguishes between the Dhuhr prayer and the 'Asr prayer, or it distinguishes.Means it is same four Rikah prayer but Change of Intention will change it.
between the observance of the fast during the month ofRamadhan and outside that month.
It also differentiates between actions of worship and those performed habitually or by
convention. For example:
The action of washing from impurity with intention to Wadhu will give reward and washing for the
purpose of refreshment will have another status.It is for all action with the change of intention the status of action and its reward will change.

Assalm o Alaikum
Translation of Faisal Award winner sheikh Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi urdu book
"Everyone knows that Prophet was descended in Arab nation who was ignorant and unmannered to the deepest level. Almost all were illiterate. The Holy Quran has mentioned the arab nation as The illiterate
هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولاً مِنْهُم
He is the One who raised amidst the unlettered people a messenger, Not only they were illiterate but were deep filled in the worst kind of social economic disarray. وَإِنْ كَانُوا مِنْ قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلاَلٍ مُبِينٍ وَكُنْتُمْ عَلَى شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِنْ النَّارِ While they were earlier in open error. You were at the brink of a pit of Fire
Prophet Approach for education and Nurturing
The first thing infused by prophet was to make them eager, keen and passionate for Deen and the knowledge of deen. Everyone was keen to learn the required Ilm for guidance. And those who has learned something considered it obligatory to teach others the same.
Mutaharrak and Amli Darsgah (Prophet established Practical and Kinetic seats of learning)
Right from Beginning Prophet made a system with the foundation principles as
Knowledge with Practice (Ilm ke saath Amal)
Practice based on Knowledge (Amaal ke saath Ilm)
Learning with teaching (Taleem with TAALLUM)
The whole Islamic society was a practical kinetic (Mobile) seat of learning (Madarsa) in which everyone was seeker for himself (Taalib) and teacher for others. The lessons of this School were not used to be reinforced alone rather by interdependence i.e. trying to memorize others and in conveying deen to others This teaching used to get imprinted on heart rather than only tongue.
To be precise lets understand that their lessons of swimming not to take on dry classes rather in in the river of life. It is very clear from Quran and Hadith that following is a parts and parcel of a Muslim life.
1. To learn deen for oneself and to practice it in life.
2. To Teach deen (Islamic Knowledge and Practice) to others
3. Encouraging for good and advising to stop from bad
4. Striving for the Spread and Propagation of deen. These all should be parts of a Muslim life.
In the era of prophet and early generation of Muslim people of all walk of life i.e Farmers businessman rich or poor used to spare some time for learning and teaching deen.
Temporary Migration Motivation and Striving for deen
7. The migration and motivation, movement and striving for deen has to be revived. It is the fundamental structure of Islamic knowledge and service of prphet era, that structure has to be replicated and revived.
8. Muslims should be encouraged to migrate temporarily (leave engagements for a short period). In this short period they should be provided with a practical religious environment following Sunnah and Shariat. This environment will make them familiar with a religious life to adopt.
9. This basic skeleton of this environment will be built by accompanying fellows and further cemented by their effort to motivate other people of the area where they have gone and stationed.
Migration and Motivation will be three way Process
a. Between each member of the group through a bidirectional process. (In group some will be more knowlagable and some less they will learn knowledge and qualities from each other Wa Tawanu Alal birre wattaqwa.
b. It will also motivate the people of the area where they have gone to learn deen and for service of deen. By this way it will become a chain and will bring revolution in Whole ummat.
On the above mentioned points Maulana Ilyas has called each section of the Muslim Ummah to temporary leave their busy engagements for a short period of time and to utilize time for teaching and learning in a religious environment.”
For this co-operation of all Muslims are solicited in effort of Dawat o Tabligh.
