How can the Muslim intend his whole life to be for Allah?

I am having a hard time understanding something. We are supposed to do everything for Allah alone. So if I want to lose weight or anything else, if I do it to look better, is this the wrong intention? If it is wrong, then what is the correct intention that I should form if I want to do something like that? When people say, you should get married for the sake of Allah only, and you should do anything else for the sake of Allah only, what does that mean in practical terms?

Praise be to Allah.
The Muslim is the one who submits to Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, and complies with His laws and His commands and prohibitions, who worships Allah, may He be exalted, because He is his Lord and Creator, Who is deserving of worship; he believes in the existence and greatness of Allah and that He is Self-Sustaining and the Sustainer of the universe. Thus belief in Allah will fill his heart and control his thoughts; love of Allah will become his goal in this life and the next, and he will hope that Allah will accept him among His righteous slaves.

Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):
Say, Indeed, my Lord has guided me to a straight path - a correct religion - the way of Abraham, inclining toward truth. And he was not among those who associated others with Allah.
Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah , Lord of the worlds.

No partner has He. And this I have been commanded, and I am the first [among you] of the Muslims
[al-Anaam 6:161-163].
The one who understands these meanings will strive to keep in mind the intention of drawing closer to Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, in all aspects of his life. So when he sleeps, he seeks reward for his sleep with Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, because by sleeping and resting he will have the energy to worship Allah when he wakes up. When he eats or drinks, he intends thereby to have nourishment that will help him to fulfil his duty towards Allah. When he gets married, he aims to keep himself chaste and to be content with what is lawful so that he has no need of what is unlawful. When he seeks to have children, he seeks to have righteous offspring who will increase the number of those who adhere to the path of Allah. When he speaks, he speaks for a good reason, and when he remains silent, he does so to avoid saying anything bad. He seeks reward by spending on himself and his family. When he learns, reads and studies, he seeks reward for that too. Such are his intentions and aims in all his deeds.
Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: He should not do permissible deeds except that which will help him to obey and worship Allah, and his intention in doing these permissible deeds should be to gain energy to obey and worship Allah. End quote.
Majmoo al-Fataawa (10/460-461).
In brief, this is how the Muslim can intend his entire life and all his deeds to be for the sake of Allah, and we can sum that up in the following two points:

He should adhere to Islamic teachings in his deeds, so he should not fail to do any obligatory duty and he should not commit any infractions.
He should note in his heart how he can connect this action even if it is basically a worldly matter to reward and seeking to draw closer to Allah, may He be exalted.
You can apply this to your specific question about losing weight. Whoever wants to make efforts to lose weight in order to maintain good health so that he can perform obligatory deeds and do his duty towards Allah in a better manner, or wants to make himself look good for his wife, so as to achieve happiness and love between them, or wants to look better for people so that he will be better accepted among them, and have a better relationship with them, these are all good aims and one will be rewarded for that, in sha Allah.
But if this permissible action is done with the intention of imitating some of the disbelievers, or is done to make one attractive to girls, and other devilish aims, then this is sinful and deserving of punishment.
The same applies to all permissible matters; the one who does them will not be rewarded unless he seeks reward thereby and is aiming to achieve a good purpose.

Ibn al-Haajj (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Depending on intention, a permissible deed may become recommended (mandoob). End quote.
Al-Madkhil (1/21).
Ibn al-Qayyim stated that the elite among those who are close to Allah are those for whom permissible acts have become acts of worships and means of drawing closer to Allah because of the intention behind them. In their case, permissible deeds bring them closer to Allah. End quote.
Madaarij as-Saalikeen (1/107)
It is soundly narrated from the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) that he said to Sad ibn Abi Waqqaas (may Allah be pleased with him): You will never spend on maintenance, seeking thereby the Countenance of Allah, but you will be rewarded for it, even a morsel that you put in your wifes mouth. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (56) and Muslim (1628).
Imam an-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said, commenting on this hadith:
This indicates that if a permissible thing is done with the intention of seeking the pleasure of Allah, may He be exalted, it becomes an act of obedience and worship, and he will be rewarded for it. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) highlighted this when he said, even a morsel that you put in your wifes mouth, because man finds pleasure with his wife and enjoys permissible intimacy with her, and when he puts a morsel of food in her mouth, that is usually a kind of playful and kind treatment, and enjoying that which is permissible, which is something that is far removed from acts of worship and matters of the hereafter, yet despite that, the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said that if he seeks the pleasure of Allah, may He be exalted, by doing that, he will be rewarded for it. So other matters are more likely to be deserving of reward, if he seeks to please Allah, may He be exalted, by doing them.
That also applies if a person does something that is basically permissible, and seeks to please Allah, may He be exalted by doing it; he will be rewarded for that. This is like eating with the intention of strengthening oneself to do acts of obedience to Allah, may He be exalted, and sleeping in order to rest so that he can get up and do acts of worship with energy, and enjoying intimacy with his wife so that he can restrain himself and his gaze and so on from unlawful things, and so that he can fulfil his wifes rights, and produce a righteous child. This is the meaning of the words of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), And in the intimacy of one of you [with his wife] there is sadaqah [charity]. And Allah knows best. End quote.
Sharh Muslim (11/77).
As-Suyooti (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
One of the best proofs that a person will attain reward by having a sound intention when doing permissible things and customary practices is the words of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): And each person will have what he intended. The one who does this will be rewarded, if he seeks thereby to draw closer to Allah, but if he does not seek or intend that, then he will have no reward. End quote.
Sharh as-Suyooti ala an-Nasaai (1/19).
And there are many similar comments from the scholars concerning this matter.
See also the answer to question no. 69960.
But you should understand that what we have mentioned to you about the intention of growing closer to Allah, may He be exalted, by means of what you do of permissible things is not by way of obligation and compulsion, because if it were obligatory and compulsory, it would not be permissible; rather it would be obligatory, and a person would be sinning by not doing it.
As for the one who does not intend anything except to fulfil his personal wishes, or desire, or need, or to enjoy something that is permissible, there is no blame on him for what he does, so long as he knows that this matter is something that shareeah has allowed and permitted. But he will not be rewarded merely for doing that deed, just as there is no sin on him for simply doing it.
And Allah knows best.

Comment dvouer toute sa vie Allah?


Il mest difficile de comprendre une affaire.Nous devons tout faire pour Allah et pour Lui seul.Si par exemple , je voulais rduire mon poids pour avoir une plus belle apparence, pourrait-on me prter une intention errone ? Sil en est ainsi, comment faire reposer mes actions sur une intention juste? Quand les gens disent quon doit se marier pour complaire Allah et que tout ce quon entreprend doit ltre dans le mme esprit, que cela signifie-t-il pratiquement?
Texte de la rponse

Louange Allah.

Le musulman est celui qui se soumet Allah le Transcendant et Trs-haut, celui qui adhre sa Loi donc Ses ordres et Ses interdits, celui qui adore Allah le Puissant et le Majestueux parce quIl est son Matre et son Crateur qui est le seul mriter dtre ador, celui qui croit en la grandeur dAllah, en Sa suffisance Lui-mme et en Son unicit; il y croit au point que sa foi domine son coeur et son me, et il fait de son amour pour son Matre lobjectif de sa vie ici-bas et dans lau-del et espre quAllah linsre parmi Ses fidles serviteurs pieux.

Le Trs-haut dit: Dis: Moi, mon Seigneur ma guid vers un chemin droit, une religion droite, la religion dAbraham, le soumis exclusivement Allah et qui ntait point parmi les associateurs. Dis: En vrit, mes prires, mes actes de dvotion, ma vie et ma mort appartiennent Allah, Seigneur de lUnivers. A Lui nul associ! Et voil ce quil ma t ordonn, et je suis le premier me soumettre. (Coran,6:161-163). Le musulman est celui qui se reprsente ces sens, semploie garder prsent lesprit lintention de se rapprocher Allah le Puissant et Majestueux travers toutes les affaires de sa vie.Quand il sendort, il considre son sommeil comme un moyen de complaire Allah dans la mesure o il lui procure un repos qui le rend plus apte sadonner au culte une fois rveill.Quand il mange ou boit, il le fait pour se donner la force dont il a besoin pour observer les droits dAllah.Quand il se marie, il le fait pour se protger contre tout rapport sexuel illicite.Quand il cherche une progniture, il vise celle qui soit susceptible dexploiter le terre conformment la voie tablie par Allah.Quand il parle, il prononce la bonne parole.Quand il se tait , il le fait pour sabstenir de dire du mal.Les dpenses quil fait pour lui-mme et pour sa famille visent lui procurer la meilleure rcompense.Quand il lit , tudie et apprend, il le fait encore pour complaire AllahLe mme dessein guide toutes ses autres actions.

Ibn Taymiyyah (Puisse Allah lui accorde Sa misricorde) a dit: Il convient de ne se livrer des actes licites (ordinaires) que dans la mesure o ils nous aident dans la dvotion et nous la facilitent. Madjmou al-fataawa (10/460-461)

Voil en rsum lexplication ce qui permet au musulman de sanimer de la bonne intention dans toutes ses actions.Nous pouvons tout ramener deux choses:

1.Soumettre toutes ses actions la loi religieuse sans omettre un devoir ni commettre un interdit.

2.Chercher faire de laction, ft-elle profane, un moyen de gnrer une rcompense divine et de rapprocher son auteur dAllah le Trs-haut. Ceci sapplique laspect de votre question concernant la diminution du poids.Celui qui cherche faire baisser son poids afin de prserver sa sant et partant de pouvoir sacquitter de ses devoirs et des droits dAllah de la meilleure manire ou dans le but de se rendre beau aux yeux de sa femme pour rpandre le bonheur et laffection dans le couple ou dans le dessein de se donner une belle apparence devant les autres pour tre mieux accueilli par eux et entretenir une meilleure communication avec eux, tout cela constitue des objectifs louables pouvant tre rcompenss sil plait le Trs-haut.

De mme, quand on accomplit un acte licite avec lintention dimiter des infidles et pour se rendre plus charmant devant les filles entre autres objectifs sataniques, cela constitue un pch et fait mriter un chtiment.Il en est de mme des autres actes licites dont lauteur ne sera rcompens que quand il les entreprend pour raliser un bon dessein.

Ibn al-Hadj (Puisse Allah lui accorder Sa misricorde) a dit: Lintention peut rendre le licite recommand. Voir al-Madkhal (1/21).

Ibn al-Qayyim souligne que ce sont les plus privilgis des Rapprochs qui ont lapanage de voir leurs actes licites transforms en actes cultuels susceptibles de les rapprocher davantage (dAllah) grce leurs intentions.Pour ceux-l, il nexiste pas un acte dont laccomplissement et le non accomplissement soient gaux .Car tout acte manant deux pse lourd. Extrait de Madaridj as-Salikiine (1/107).

Il a t rapport par une voie vrifie que le Messager dAllah (Bndiction et salut soient sur lui) a dit Saad ibn Abi Waqqas (P.A.a): Certes, tu neffectues aucune dpense sans en tre rcompens par Allah, mme quand il sagit de nourrir ta femme. (Rapport par al-Boukhari, 56 et par Mouslim, 1628)

Limam an-Nawawi (Puisse Allah lui accorder Sa misricorde) commente ce hadith en ces termes: Quand on accomplit un acte licite pour complaire Allah Trs-haut, lacte revt un caractre cultuel et devient apte gnrer une rcompense. Cest ce que le Prophte (Bndiction et salut soient sur lui) entend souligner quand il dit: mme quand il sagit de mettre une bouch dans la bouche de ta femme.Lpouse est la chance de son poux puisquelle lui permet dassouvir licitement son dsir charnel.Sil lui met un aliment la bouche, il ne le fait que dans le cadre de la flatterie et dchanges amoureux, choses qui restent trs loin de sinscrire dans un cadre cultuel li aux affaires de lau-del.

Pourtant le Prophte (Bndiction et salut soient sur lui) nous a inform que si on nourrit sa femme avec lintention de complaire Allah Trs-haut, on obtiendra une rcompense.La bonne action fait dans un autre cadre doit tre plus mme de gnrer la rcompense , pourvu quelle soit entreprise pour complaire Allah Trs-haut.Ceci implique que quand on pose un acte licite (ordinaire) avec lintention de complaire Allah Trs-haut, on en est rcompens. Cest comme le cas de celui qui mange dans lintention de se donner la force pour se vouer au culte du Trs-haut, et celui qui sendort pour se reposer afin de sadonner au culte avec plus dnergie, et celui qui samuse avec sa femme ou sa concubine pour ne pas avoir le faire illicitement et pour satisfaire sa partenaire sexuellement et dans lespoir davoir un enfant pieux.Cest dans ce sens que le Prophte (Bndiction et salut soient sur lui) dit : Lacte sexuel vaut pour une aumne. Extrait de Charh Mouslim (11/77).

As-Souyouti (Puisse Allah lui accorder Sa misricorde) a dit : Fait parti des meilleurs arguments avancs pour tayer lide selon laquelle un acte habituel licite entrepris dans une bonne intention peut entraner une rcompense pour son auteur, la lumire de la parole du Prophte (Bndiction et salut soient sur lui): ..Chacun sera trait en fonction de ses intentions. Ds lors, lacte que voil (le rapport sexuel) est rcompens quand on lentreprend pour se rapprocher dAllah.Autrement, il ne gnre aucune rtribution. Extrait de charh as-Souyouti alaa an-Nassai (1/19). Les citations attribues aux ulmas sur le sujet son nombreuses.Voir la rponse donne la question n (69960)

Toutefois, notre frre, auteur de la prsente question , doit savoir que ce que nous avons avanc propos de votre intention de vous rapprocher Allah Trs-haut travers vos actes licites (ordinaires) na aucun caractre contraignant car ce qui relve du devoir nest pas simplement licite puisquil est obligatoire et celui qui ne sy conforme pas commet un pch.

Quant celui qui ne cherche quassouvir son dsir psychologique ou son plaisir ou son besoin ou trouver un amusement licite, il nencourt rien pour cause de son acte, si tant est quil sait linscrir dans le cadre de ce que la loi permet. Toujours est-il quil ne sera pas rcompens pour son simple acte comme il ne comment pas de pch non plus.

Allah le sait mieux.
