Hadith
Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him), reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,

“ The deeds are considered by the


intentions, and a person will get
the reward according to his intention.
So whoever emigrated for Allah and
His Messenger, his emigration will
be for Allah and His Messenger; and
whoever emigrated for worldly
benefits or for a woman to marry,
his emigration would be for what he
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. Source: Riyadh us Saaliheen 1-1
emigrated for".
