The Intellect of the Prophet (s.a.w.)


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhammad al-Hasan ibn ‘Alawi al-Maliki (q.s.) wrote, in al-Insan al-Kamil, “The upright tabi’i, Wahb ibn Munabbih, from whom Imam al-Bukhari, Imam Muslim, and others narrated ahadits, said, ‘I read seventy-one scriptures, and deduced from all of them that Allah (s.w.t.) did not Give to any of humanity, from the world’s beginning to its end, intellects comparable to Muhammad’s (s.a.w.) intellect, except as a single grain of sand compared to all the sand in the world; and that Muhammad (s.a.w.) is the most intelligent and soundest of all humanity.’

The perfection of his intellect was manifested in how he confronted a world whose every realm was infested with ignorance to the extent that the people had utterly lost their minds, and changed this mentality into a sound and righteous mentality.  To do this requires sound intellect and correct thought; and there is no doubt that this was achieved by means of the Teachings of the Most Wise, and the Inspiration of the Lord of the Worlds.  But even Divine Teachings and Inspiration require an illuminated and illuminating intellect, Divinely Prepared to convey them.”
