The Moral and Emotional Intelligence of the Prophet s.a.w.

 

This work is an inquiry into the nature of the intellect and how classical Islamic theologians understood the nature and function of the intellect.

 

With the Heart in Mind asks readers to consider an alternative understanding of intelligence in which the primary function of the intellect is to know God and lead others to Him as well. The author suggests that by studying the Emotional Intelligence of the Prophet Muhammad (S), we improve the quality of our relationships with the people around us and we, like the Prophet (S), can become catalysts for change around us. Emotional Intelligence within the author's model of intelligence is a tool by which the message of God is transferred to humanity. With the Heart in Mind reminds us that "To be loved by people is half of intelligence."
