Another gem from Shaykh HY. Ultimately, the human intellect is what separates us from animals: how we are able to reason, and seek knowledge, and understand. Discern, discriminate, and ultimately choose.
[And this, dear wonderful readers, is precisely why I really need to cut down on how much chicken biryani I am known to consume — nay, devour. If someone can give me the recipe for a really great vegan alternative to chicken biryani (the actual love of my life) I will forever be indebted to thee]
