Is it fardh to make a silent intention before praying? What would one say in his intention?
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
The intention for salah from the heart is sufficient. It is not fardh to make verbal intention before performing salah.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
