Various new studies indicate that human intelligence is derived from or divided into Intellectual Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ), and Spiritual Quotient (SQ). Nevertheless, these various forms of intelligence have not been able to clarify the essence of the true source of intelligence. This is a conceptual article discussing the ruh, which is inherent within every human self as a source of intelligence. The ruh, as a source of intelligence, exists in every human being, and it has the ability to feel, which spreads throughout the human senses. This explains the relationship between ruh and al-aql (sense/reason), al-qalb (heart), and an-nafs (self). With its ability to feel, ruh subsequently drives the mind to think through various imaginings that ultimately generates understanding. The mind and thoughts, which develop through imagination resulting in understanding, consequently produce knowledge. Hence, ruh is knowledge that contains wisdom and sapience, that resides in the heart (al-qalb), and it is the grace that Allah blows into every human to complete the process of human creation. Consequently, ruh shall constantly be inclined to voice honesty/truthfulness (siddiq), to be responsible (amanah), to deliver good tidings (tabligh), and to possess intelligence (fathanah). This spiritual phenomenon is what we refer to as Ruhani Quotient (RQ). Ruhani Quotient (RQ), which is essentially grounded on the ruh, may have implications on new studies about Ruhiology, which is a study that does not merely discuss corporeal knowledge, but is an extensive knowledge about wisdom and sapience.
