Holy Quran and the people with intellect

One may feel after understanding the Holy Quran, it invites people to ponder on the signs that there is a Divine existence. On numerous occasions in Quran Allah has addressed those with intellect, and called them to ponder on different things. Allah says in Quran:

"But none will grasp the message except the men of intellect."
The Holy Quran, Chapter 2, Verse 269

An understanding mind is one of the greatest blessings of Allah. All the advancements and achievements in modern science in different fields are due to those, who have used their brain. That is why Allah invites people to ponder on the world in order to find the existence of ALLAH the Almighty. Allah mentions in Quran:

“Surely the worst of animals in Allah's sight are the deaf, the dumb who do not use their brains.”
The Holy Quran, Chapter 8, Verse 22

There is no doubt that the world we live in is amusing for those who ponder on different aspects of life and nature. This is one of the major factors that Islam is growing immensely day by day, a person who ponders on things come to a conclusion that there is a Deity controlling everything in this world. After realizing the existence of God, then the next quest is to find the true guidance and for this people ultimately turn towards the Holy Quran. It gives answers to all the questions rising in an intellectual’s mind. Allah says in Quran: 

“Of course, the creation of the heavens and the earth, as well as the (contrast and) alternation between the night and the day offer (many) signs for those with intellect.”
The Holy Quran, Chapter 3, Verse 190

No wonder famous scientists like Prof. Gerald G. Goeringer, Prof. William W. Hey, Prof. E. Marshall Johnson, Prof. Alfred Kroner, Prof. Keith Moore etc, after studying the Holy Quran reverted to Islam.
