Haroon once asked Bahlool: "What is the best blessing from Allah?" Bahlool replied:

"The supreme blessing from Allah can be nothing else but Aql - intellect and power of reasoning. And Khwaja Abdullah Ansari in his supplication had mentioned:

"O Allah! To those blessed with intellect what is it that you have not given? And to those not blessed with intellect, what have you given!"

It is recorded that when Allah wishes to punish someone by taking away from him His blessings, the first thing He takes away is his Aql - intellect. And human intellect is considered also as one of the valuable sustenance from Allah.

"The first thing created by Allah is intellect" The human intellect - reasoning - has been defined in the following hadith: "Intellect Is that by which Allah the Compassionate is obeyed and by which one qualifies to enter heaven."

The Prophet of Islam has also said "Indeed all that is good to attainable by (the help and use of) intellect and he who has no intellect has no religion."
