I do not understand where this hadith applies. It means whatever a person thinks and says, it means he sinned? How is this possible? It is believed everywhere that nothing is accountable without acting on it so how can this hadith say that speaking of thoughts alone is also accountable WITHOUT ACTION!
Al-Bukhaari (5269) and Muslim (127) also narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, will forgive my ummah for whatever crosses their minds so long as they do not act upon it or speak of it.”
