‘Aql (Arabic: عقل‎, meaning "intellect"), is an Arabic language term used in Islamic theology or philosophy for the intellect the rational faculty of the soul or mind. It is the normal translation of the Greek term nous. In jurisprudence, it is associated with using reason as a source for sharia "religious law" and has been translated as "dialectical reasoning".While predominantly expounded by Shī‘ī and Sufi thinkers, some Sunni Muslims such as Barelvis share similar beliefs.
