Sins & Good Intentions? - From the Malfoozat of Hazrat Moulana Ashraf 'Ali Thanwi saheb Rahmatullahi 'Alayh

"The hadeeth 'Verily actions are according to intentions' pertains to permissible acts and worship. It does not apply to sins. The hadeeth means that good deeds accompanied by good intentions are acceptable. It does not mean that sins accompanied by good intentions are transformed into virtuous deeds."

Taken from Malfoozat (Statements and Anecdotes), page 48
