Intelligence is also a blessing and it must be used widely
"Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an in order that you may understand"
(Surah Yusuf, verse 2)
Among the blessings of Allah, Intelligence is a highly valuable one but ignored by humans. Intelligence distinguishes man from the rest of the creations in this universe. ‘Aaqil’ is an honourable term to define human beings.
And if you should count the favor of Allah , you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful ( Surah Ibrahim, 34)
Man is bestowed with leadership through a blessed Intelligence
Indeed, we offered the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it and feared it; but man [undertook to] bear it. Indeed, he was unjust and ignorant (Surah al-Ahzab verse 72)
Man picked up the trust because of his intelligence. Therefore if someone does not use his intelligence then he is said to be an animal.
Intelligence is a blessing and it will be asked how we used it
