Niyah, (also called Niyat (Arabic: نیت)) is an Islamic concept which is the intent one evokes in his heart to do an act of worship for the sake of Allah (God).

There is some debate as to the audible utterance of Niyah. Most scholars agree that, since Niyah is spoken from the heart, it does not have to be uttered. Additionally, there is no evidence that the prophet Muhammed or any of his companions ever uttered a Niyah.

A Muslim must have Niyah before commencing salah (prayer), and in order to commence the Hajj (pilgrimage to Meccamarker). Niyah is also the solemn and sincere desire to do something for Allah.
