Importance of Logic and Reasoning in ISLAM


The use of Reason, Intellect and the Holy Quran …
وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَن تُؤْمِنَ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِ اللّهِ وَيَجْعَلُ الرِّجْسَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ لاَ يَعْقِلُونَ
And He casts uncleanness on those who do not use intellect (aqal). (Quran 10:100)

وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلاَّ أُوْلُواْ الأَلْبَابِ
“But none will grasp the message except the men of intellect.” (Quran 2:269)

إِنَّ شَرَّ الدَّوَابَّ عِندَ اللّهِ الصُّمُّ الْبُكْمُ الَّذِينَ لاَ يَعْقِلُونَ
Surely the worst of animals in Allah’s sight are the deaf, the dumb who do not use their brains. (Quran 8:22)

وَقَالُوا لَوْ كُنَّا نَسْمَعُ أَوْ نَعْقِلُ مَا كُنَّا فِي أَصْحَابِ السَّعِيرِ
They will say: “Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!” (Quran 67:10)

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ أَمْ عَلَى قُلُوبٍ أَقْفَالُهَا
Do they not then ponder on the Quran, or are there locks on the hearts? (Quran 47:24)
