Islam is all about intentions.
Kinky hair, blue eyes, wide shoulders, or freckled skin is not something we earn, nor something that we own. These are given to us on loan to take care of. These modalities that we are utilizing are a manifestation of the soul God has given to each human being. People are so ironic. Some seem to be so humble and generous, while others seems to be so arrogant and loud. Just like there are no two finger prints exactly the same, there are no two hearts with mirrored intentions. Deeds. Deeds are accomplished for Multiple reasons, maybe even multiple reasons at the same time. People accomplish things, travel earth, give of themselves, and show respect to each other. But what does it all matter? I mean, why be generous if you do it for yourself? Why are people reinventing the wheel here? There are so many people who believe the most important thing in life is to love one another and be kind. But what's the point of that if there is minimal or even no accountability if one isn't good? What justifies people in thinking they are doing enough of good causes? What justifies them in thinking that their good actions will be rewarded in the Hereafter? Can't they see that this life is just a short ride? I mean, what really gives them the confidence that a good action here will result in a good reward their?
If people say with God is the Final Return, and if they believe that the Hereafter is True, then why do they live for this life without thinking about what happens after death? If we know the reality of all this why do we choose to look the other way? Why do you do what you do?
