Your thoughts determine your end

Its important to know the phases of a thought which leads to an action and even a legacy.

Imam Ibn ul Mubarak (May Allah have Mercy on him) nicely summarised these phases as:

  1. Ilm: Knowledge
  2. An-niyyah : Intention
  3. Al-isimaa’ah : Full attentiveness
  4. Al-fahm : Understanding
  5. Al-hifdh : Memorisation
  6. Al-‘amal : Action
  7. An-nashr : Spreading knowledge

– Jaami’ul bayaan al ailm wa fadhlahu

The Prophet(SAW) taught us that “the example of that knowledge which is not benefited from is like that treasure which isnt spent.” [Tabarani]
