Allah directs us to think and deliberate on legislative principles to seek the wisdom behind them. Because life is not predictable, life is not automatic or uniform that a religious legislation is automatically and uniformly applied to a situation. There are many different cases, scenarios, to which one general principle can be applied. And if a person is unaware of the wisdom behind a legislative principle and does not understand the connected/intertwined nature of such legislation then one cannot apply the principles to the differing scenarios that humans face in the reality of their day to day life. And Islam cares a great deal about awakening the intellect to deliberate such legislation so that the principle can applied to the many differing situations.
