From the Places Where Intentions Can Slip and Fall

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

A person gets happy when expressions of thanks are said to him after he’s carried out some beneficial deed, especially if its benefit extended to others.

But from the places where intentions can slip and fall here is anticipating this thanks or feeling sad when there’s none.

[Keeping] intentions [purely for Allāh] needs great effort due to the many things that come up against it.
