Thinking (at-tafkeer)
 Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Raheem
M
an is absolutely the most favoured creature;even to the pointthat it was said - which is true - that he is favoured over theangels.The preference ofman lies in his intellect (
‘aql
).Theintellect (
‘aql
) ofman is what raised his status,and made him superior toall creatures.Therefore,it is necessary to understand this intellect (
‘aql
),and accordingly it is necessary to know what is thinking (
at-tafkee
),andwhat is the method ofthinking? (
Tareeqat ut-tafkee
).This is because thisreality designated as thinking (
at-tafkee
) is what gives the intellect itsvalue,and what brings those elaborate fruits,with which life revives andman revives.The whole universe,including everything,even theinanimate beings,plants and animals,revive.Sciences (
‘uloom
),arts (
 funoon
),literature (
adaab
),philosophy (
 falsafah
), jurisprudence (
 fiqh
),language (
lughah
) and knowledge (
ma’rifah
),arethemselves the output ofthe mind (
‘aql
),and consequently the output of thinking (
at-tafkee
).Therefore,it is necessary for the sake ofman,lifeand the whole universe,that the reality ofthe mind (
‘aql
) iscomprehended,and the reality ofthinking (
at-tafkee
) and the method of thinking (
Tareeqat ut-tafkee
) be comprehended accordingly.Humanity has made this great advance in life and in the time,whilstbeing mostly concerned with the output ofthe mind (
‘aql
) and with theoutput ofthinking (
at-tafkee
),without being concerned with the reality
