Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Intention is from the heart. If one has the intention to perform Hajj in his heart, that is sufficient. He does not have to verbally state his intention. However one of the conditions of entering into the state of Ihram is to verbally mention the talbiya i.e.:

     لبيك اللهم لبيك لبيك لا شريك لك لبيك ان الحمد والنعمة لك والملك لا شريك لك

َأَمَّا شَرْطُهُ وَوَاجِبَاتُهُ فَشَرْطُهُ النِّيَّةُ ، وَهُوَ أَصْلُ النِّيَّةِ دُونَ التَّعْيِينِ ، وَأَنَّ نِيَّةَ الْحَجِّ عِنْدَ الْإِحْرَامِ كَافِيَةٌ ، وَلَا يَحْتَاجُ إلَى نِيَّةٍ مُفْرَدَةٍ كَمَا فِي سَائِرِ أَفْعَالِ الْحَجِّ ، وَكَمَا فِي أَفْعَالِ الصَّلَاةِ .

[Badaiu sanai V 2 PG 308 Darul Kitab Deoband]
