”So if a man’s reason is stronger than his desire..”
Ibn Al Qayyim wrote:
Qataadah said: “Allah created angels with reason and no desires, animals with desires and no reason, and man with both reason and desires.” So if a man’s reason is stronger than his desire than he is like an angel, and if his desires are stronger than his reason, then he is like an animal.
‘Uddat As Sabireen, 2/7.
