The Mind

A discussion on the basic qualities of a healthy mind and what it will enable a person to do as described in the Qur'an.
Mind and reason are an essential part of Islamic thought and legislation. One could not exist without the other. What exactly do we refer to when we talk about the mind? There are two kinds of reasoning by the mind that have been identified.
The first is intuitive reasoning that includes: the capacity to comprehend, make rational conclusions, form speech and behave sensibly. The second kind of reasoning is acquired from our environment, such as the things we have been taught or become familiarized with.
I shall discuss intuitive reasoning for it is what Allah has granted to all, and it is what makes us accountable for our behavior.
