to seven hundred folds, and even more. But if he intends to do an evil act and has not done it, then Allah writes it
down with Him as a full good deed, but if he intends it and has done it, Allah writes it down as one bad deed".

`Abdullah bin `Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with them) narrated that: He heard Messenger of
Allah (PBUH) as saying:
"Three men, amongst those who came before you, set out until night came and they
reached a cave, so they entered it. A rock fell down from the mountain and blocked the entrance of the cave. They
said: `Nothing will save you from this unless you supplicate to Allah by virtue of a righteous deed you have done.'
Thereupon, one of them said: `O Allah! I had parents who were old, and I used to offer them milk before any of my
children or slaves. One day, I went far away in search of grazing and could not come back until they had slept.
When I milked as usual and brought the drink I found them both asleep. I hated to disturb them and also disliked to
give milk to my children before them. My children were crying out of hunger at my feet but I awaited with the bowl
in my hand for them to wake up. When they awoke at dawn, they drank milk. O Allah! If I did so to seek Your
Pleasure, then deliver us from the distress caused by the rock'. The rock moved slightly but they were unable to
escape. The next said: `O Allah! I had a cousin whom I loved more than any one else (in another version he said: as
a man can love a woman). I wanted to have sexual intercourse with her but she refused. Hard pressed in a year of
famine, she approached me. I gave her one hundred and twenty dinars on condition that she would yield herself to
me. She agreed and when we got together (for sexual intercourse), she said: Fear Allah and do not break the seal
unlawfully. I moved away from her in spite of the fact that I loved her most passionately; and I let her keep the
money I had given her. O Allah! If I did that to seek Your Pleasure, then, remove the distress in which we are.' The
rock moved aside a bit further but they were still unable to get out. The third one said: `O Allah! I hired some
labourers and paid them their wages except one of them departed without taking his due. I invested his money in
business and the business prospered greatly. After a long time, he came to me and said: O slave of Allah! Pay me
my dues. I said: All that you see is yours - camels, cattle, goats and slaves. He said: O slave of Allah! Do not mock
at me. I assured him that I was not joking. So he took all the things and went away. He spared nothing. O Allah! If I
did so seeking Your Pleasure, then relieve us of our distress.' The rock slipped aside and they got out walking
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
1. It is permissible to pray through our virtuous deeds. But to make someone a medium for it, is an innovation in
Deen which should be avoided for two major reasons. Firstly, there is no evidence in Shari`ah to support this.
