To members of Islamic Organization for Dawah
By: Mohamed Riswan.
The sixth condition is sincerity, which means that actions are free from any element of shirk. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allaah only [al-Zumar 39:3]
“Say (O Muhammad): ‘Allaah Alone I worship by doing religious deeds sincerely for His sake only’ ” [al-Zumar 39:14]
In al-Saheeh it is narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The most deserving of my intercession are those who say Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah sincerely from the heart or from the soul.”
