When we make intention ( Niyyah ) ?
The Intention ( Niyyah ) Should be made daily before morning prayer ( Fajar Adhaan )
Allah’s messenger said:
“Who ever doesn’t commit himself to fasting before dawn ( Fajar ), there is no Fast for him”
Abu dawood no,2454 ( Authenticated by Al-Albāni ) ibn Mājah no. 1700, Tirmidhi no. 730
“There is no Fast for the one who didn’t make the intention to fast from the Night”
Dāruqutni 2/172. Authenticated by Al-Albãni in Al-Irwā no.914
How we make the intention ( Niyyah ) ?
The niyyah ( intention ) is an action of the heart. It is you to resolve in your heart that you are going to fast tomorrow.
Shaykh Al-Islam ibn Taymiyah said:
“If it crosses a person’s mind that he is going to fast tomorrow, then he has made the intention ( Niyyah )”
Al-Ikhtiyaaraat (p. 191).
It is not prescribed in Sunnah for us to utter out loud the Niyyah ( Intention ) and say :
" i intend to fast" or " I’ll Fast tomorrow " or other phrases that have been innovated by some people. The correct intention is when a person resolves in his heart that he is going to fast tomorrow.
