Tahir Javed November 2, 2014 at 9:02 pm In my search for materials on Islamic perspective on MI, I found your brief article interesting yet a bit too brief for my need. That’s why I thought of writing to you. At present, my thinking is that of the 8 acknowledged types, intrapersonal intelligence opens a window to much of the spiritual aspects of Islam -e.g. faith, piety, patience (‘sabr’), non-conditional gratitude towards Allah (‘shukr’ ,) and so on. Your suggestion that ‘existential intelligence’ may be more suitably oriented the spiritual aspects of Islam has got me curious. Some elaboration of your thoughts on this point wold be highly appreciated.
