With the Heart in Mind 💛
The Moral & Emotional Intelligence of Rasulullah (s.a.w.)
a lecture by Shaykh Mikaeel Smith
Why do we consider emotional intelligence as an important element on the construct of the Prophetic intellect? The prophets were tasked with the divine responsibility of conveying to humanity the keys to their salvation. They were tasked not only with passing on the message but also with being a living example of that message.
‘With the Heart in Mind’ asks participants 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.
We will explore that by studying the emotional intelligence of our beloved Rasulullah (s.a.w.), so that we can improve the quality of our relationships with the people around us and become catalysts for change towards the better.
Emotional intelligence within the prophetic framework is the model of intelligence by which the message of Allah is transferred to humanity and the development of both intra- and interpersonal intelligence. ‘With the Heart in Mind’ reminds us that “to be loved by people is half of intelligence.”
