    imam nawawi says that almost every book of hadith starts with the fundamental one because of its immense importance: 'innama al-a'amalu bi'n niyyaat wa li kulli'mriyim maa nawaa'.

    the merit of actions depends on intentions and every man (or woman) gets what they have intended for.

    'tazkiyah' has rightly pointed out that if someone feels happy for having opposed RasulAllah Sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, it would be kufr whereas if it is vanity it should be considered makruh.

    Allah knows best.

    Hmm..That seems a little extreme.

    There could be another possibility.One might feel happy at the way his appearance looks..but if som1 says you are opposing the way of Muhammad(saw).Now if he feels happy with opposing the way of Muhammad(saw) and gloats over this..this would be a type of kufr.

    Which is different to the first case in my opinion!

    I am told that it mentions in Fatawa Alamgiri that a person who shaves his beard, then upon seeing his reflection thinks to himself that he looks good this way, has lost his imaan because of his utter disrespect for the sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhe wasalam.

    Can anyone confirm this?
