Allah (ﷻ) has blessed us with ‘aql above the animals, who merely act according to their desires. At the same time however, ‘aql is not boundless and all-powerful. If we were to look at the verses of the Qur’an closely, it’s clear that its recipients (ie prophets) and its targets (ie humankind) are rational human beings, who are supposed to have the capacity to understand, interpret, and accept the message sent to them.
This is a brief description of two prominent modern-day Muslim scholars. One is an Egyptian trained at al-Azhar, while the other is Indo-Pak trained at Deoband. The Azhari scholar has a legal approach and legal opinions that categorically contradict those of his Deobandi counterpart. Compare them and witness how they end up speaking about each other. Some of you may find it shocking.
