عن أبي هُرَيْرَةَ قال قال رسول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم من هَمَّ بِحَسَنَةٍ فلم يَعْمَلْهَا كُتِبَتْ له حَسَنَةً وَمَنْ هَمَّ بِحَسَنَةٍ فَعَمِلَهَا كُتِبَتْ له عَشْرًا إلى سبعمائة ضِعْفٍ وَمَنْ هَمَّ بِسَيِّئَةٍ فلم يَعْمَلْهَا لم تُكْتَبْ وَإِنْ عَمِلَهَا كُتِبَتْ

Abu Hurayrah (rta) stated that God’s Messenger (sws) said: “A person who resolved to do a virtue but could not do it, its reward will be written down for him; a person who resolved to do a virtue and was able to do it, its reward ranging from ten to seven hundred times [the weight of the virtue] will be written down for him and a person who attempted to do a vice and was not able to do it, it is not written [in his account], and if he does it, it is written in his account.”[1]
