Niyyah - Intention

The Great Sufi Master, Khwaja Shah Bahauddin Naqshband [qadasAllahu sirrah] said:

“Intention, niyyat, is very important.  It consists of three letters: nun, which represents Nur Allah (light of God); ya, which represents yad Allah (hand of God); and ha, which represents hidayatullah (the guidance of God).  Niyyat is the breeze of the soul, coming from the unseen world, not from the material world.”
