A Series of Reminders About The Month of Ramaḍān – No.16

*The Place Of The Intention*

Sh. Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān حفظه الله إيمانه said: “The place for the intention for all acts of worship is the heart, and it is not permissible to utter it (upon the tongue). That is because it has never been reported that Prophet ﷺ or his companions would say, ‘I intend to fast’, ‘I intend to pray’ or other than that. Therefore, uttering it (i.e. the intention) is an innovation and newly invented affair.
