BaarakAllaahu feek akhee.

Just for clarity, the quote in  my post above is just a part of the article and not the whole article on Sahab. (The '...' refers to parts I have left out.) I have now edited the post to reflect this.
The full article can be accessed at the link in the post:

This is an issue which has caused confusion for many who examine
affairs with a materialistic mindset; they do not refer back to Allah nor
His Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam).  The reality of the matter is
that Aql is in the hearts, which are in the breasts [of mankind].

ıııııııı ııııııııı ııı ııııııııı ııııııııı ıııııı ııııııı ııııııııııı ııııı ıııı ıııııı ııııııııııı ııııı ? ıııııııııı ııı
ııııııı ıııııııııııı ıııı?ııı ııııııı ıııııııııı ııııııı ııı ıııııııııı [22:46]

"Do they not travel through the land, so that their hearts may comprehend
(ya'qiloon) and their ears may thus learn to hear? Truly it is not their
eyes that are blind, but their hearts which are in their breasts.

Note how He did not say "the hearts which are within the brains, but
rather, which are within the breasts."

Then the Shaykh mentions the well-known hadeeth about the heart being the
key part of the body; if it is well, the whole body is well, and if it gets
corrupted, the whole body gets corrupted.

Therefore, it can be determined that Aql is contained in the heart; the
brain simply envisions thoughts, prepares them, and sends them to the
heart, which then either orders or forbids.

How disgusting is poverty
after sufficiency, and even
more disgusting is misguidance
after guidance - Qisasul

Some parts of the article by the Shaykh, rahimahullaah

هذه مسألة أشكلت على كثير من النظار الذين ينظرون إلى الأمور نظرة مادية لا يرجعون فيها إلى قول الله وقول رسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم وإلا فالحقيقة أن الأمر فيها واضح أن العقل في القلب وأن القلب في الصدر { أفلم يسيروا في الأرض فتكون لهم قلوب يعقلون بها }.

وقال { فإنها لا تعمى الأبصار ولكن تعمى القلوب التي في الصدور } ولم يقل القلوب التي في الأدمغة فالأمر فيه واضح جدا أن العقل يكون في القلب ويؤيد هذا قول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ألا وإن في الجسد مضغة إذا صلحت صلح الجسد كله وإذا فسدت فسد الجسد كله ألا وهي القلب
فما بالك بأمر شهد به كتاب الله والله هو الخالق العالم بكل شيء وشهدت به سنة الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم.


إذا القلب هو محل العقل ولا شك ولكن الدماغ محل التصور ثم إذا تصورها وجهزها بعث بها إلى القلب ثم القلب يأمر أو ينهى
