Ibn al-Qayyim states:
Opposing the Lord corrupts the intellect, for the intellect has a light and acts of disobedience extinguish it. When its light becomes extinguished, it becomes weak. For this reason, a wise man said, “No one disobeys Allaah until his intellect is absent, for if it were present, it would gave prevented him from disobedience.” He is in the grasp of his Lord and under His power. He sees all that he does, and His Angels are witnesses over him, watching him. The admonition of the Quran prohibits him, and the admonition of belief in death and the Fire prohibits him so would the one who possess intellect make light of these?
