Intellect & Heart


Umer: Imam Ahmed said: Intellect is a natural thing. And Allah says in Qur'an: "Verily in this is a Message for any that has a heart..." (Surah 50: verse 37.) Now, these scholars call qalb (heart) as intellect. So what do you say?

Z. S: I have the opinion that: Intellect even if it means to discern between the right and wrong, it is natural though refined by the Divine. And if it means to know tha reality, as it actually is, then also at one hand it is presented more or less (but not absolutely) by the Divine in its pure form and then, on the other hand, established in the human soul in the form of more or less consciousness.
May Allah forgive me upon what I say, I said from my little intellect.

The matter would have been more clear, semantically speaking not intellectually, had I quoted the complete verse which goes on as: "Verily in this is a Message for any that has a heart and understanding or who gives ear and earnestly witnesses (the truth)."
