Only 3 or 4 ayahs in the Quran refute atheism. The majority of ayah serve as proof for the existence of Allah swt

Intellect cannot be quanitfied. Our own aql corrects ourselves, how can we base theology on that?

(Sometimes we spend so much time believing one thing, and later we may realize its wrong. It's shaky. Why base something that is as important as eeman on a shaky foundation when we have a strong one -Quran and Sunnah)

Just a clarification for those who didn't take the class, this is a statemenet which is made by the people of "Kalam" and is not supported by Islam.

Intelect and the divine scripture in reality cannot be contradictory. Allah is the creator of the Aql and He revealed the divine scripture so to say the above would be saying Allah didn't create correctly wastaghfarullah.

Intellect should lead you to the Qur'an and Sunnah (that they are the way to follow), THEN you should use your 'Aql to UNDERSTAND the Qur'an and Sunnah, not to reject them.

If the divine scripture doesn't agree with 'Aql, then what you brought forth was not truely intellect, but rather it is flawed.

How can we base what we accept or reject from the Qur'an and Sunnah on our 'Uqool ('Aql), if indeed this was correct then what will we do when it comes to the differences between minds of people? which mind will we use? if this was correct we would all reach one conclusion as to what is the logical explanation and what isn't and that in itself is an impossibility, for every mind thinks different, and the Wisdom we thus must follow is the perfect Wisdom, and that is the Wisdom of Allah. We believe in the Book all of it and reject none of it.

~one of the reasons Rasool SAW constantly told the sahaba of Allah's nuzool (allah coming down) in the last third of the night was because he wanted to show the importance of praying tahajjud~
