Benefit: Intelligence Is to Prefer the Hereafter Over the Dunyā

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Imām Abū Ḥātim ibn Ḥibbān (d. AH 354), may Allāh have mercy upon him, said:1

Intelligence is the remedy of the hearts; the tool of the scholars; the seed for the tilth of the Hereafter; the Crown of the believer in the worldly life; and his readiness for any calamity. Whomever lacks intelligence, then gaining power shall never increase him in Honour, nor shall wealth ever Exalt him.

[1] Imām Abū Ḥātim ibn Ḥibbān, Rawḍah al-ʿUqʿalá, p56.
