DON’T RELY ON INTELLECT ALONE!!!

قال ابن تيمية رحمه الله:     [ وقد يكون الرجل من أذكياء الناس وأحدّهم نظرًا ، ويعميه عن أظهر الأشياء ، وقد يكون من أبلد الناس وأضعفهم نظرًا ويهديه لما اختلف فيه من الحق بإذنه ، فلا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله . فمن اتكل على نظره واستدلاله ، أو عقله ومعرفته خُذِل ، ولهذا كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في الأحاديث الصحيحة كثيرًا ما يقول : ” يا مقلِّب القلوب ثبِّت قلبي على دينك ” ] الدرء 9 / 34 لشيخ الإسلام

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said: A man can be from the most intelligent of people and among the sharpest of them as far as how he perceives affairs and it will make him blind of the most clearest of things and also you can have a man who is the most slow of people and the weakest of them of how he perceives and sees matters and Allah will guide him to what was differed in of the truth. There isn’t any might or strength except with Allah. So whoever relies on his in intelligence and his usage of certain things as evidence (without relying and asking Allah to give him insight) or relies on his intellect or his knowledge of his mind he will be let down for that reason the Prophet [ﷺ], in an authentic text, would say “oh turner of hearts, keep our hearts firm upon your religion.
