What is human’s perception?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Sadeq (AS) narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: A person is not a believer unless there are two ears for his/her heart: One ear for the angel to breathe upon, and one ear which Satan breathes temptation. God graces/honours the believer with the angel: And this is from Allah (SWT) who says: He/she (the believer) is graced/honoured with a spirit from God [1]. It is also narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: Then, if you face a difficulty in your affairs, consider it to be due to your lack of knowledge, because you were clueless in your first stage of creation, then you became knowledgeable and yet there are so many things which you have no knowledge of them, and your mind and judgement are wondering about them, and your perception of them is confused, and then you gain understanding of them [2].
