An Intelligent Muslim
The intelligent person is the one who constantly performs self-assessment on his deeds, and ensures that all his actions are geared for his life after death. On the other hand, a careless person is one who follows his wanton desires, but at the same time wishes all good rewards from Allah.
-Muhammad (saw), narrated by Imam Tirmidhi
The hadith mentions the two traits of an intelligent Muslim. First, he always does self-accounting on his past deeds.
Second, he ensures that all his actions are not only for this life, but for his life in the Hereafter.
