The Wise Counsel of Luqman

By Shaikh ʿAbdu’l–Razzaq Ibn ʿAbdu’l-Muḥsin al-Badr

Al-Hikmah is a divine prerogative. It is a gift from Allah granted to whomever

He Wills from among His servants. Some define it as 'beneficial knowledge

that corroborates with good righteous deeds'; others say it is 'doing an

appropriate act at the most appropriate time and place'; and yet others

deem it to be foresightedness, comprehension, felicitous conduct and good

opinion. All of these definition are in fact befitting and apt.

Allah, The Most High bestowed Luqman (upon him be peace) with much

foresight, intelligence and profound judgement - injecting it deep into his

heart whereby his words, deeds and manners were grounded in wisdom.

Allah Revealed: "And indeed we bestowed upon Luqman Al-

Hikmah..." [Luqman (31): 12]

The instructions and advices found in the story of Luqman Al-Ḥakim

comprise noble guidance and contain perfect conduct in inviting people

towards Allah, and nurturing of children. It speaks of proper upbringing

of a generation, describing ways to success and teaching people holistic

goodness. Making it incumbent upon every mentor, father and teacher to

pay attention to the prescriptions found therein; providing contemplation and

deriving exemplary lesson plans in the field of propagating and education.

These lessons can tangibly facilitate in drawing hearts and enriching minds.

Consisting of elementary details that appeal to one’s good conscience; for

indeed putting across Allah’s Message to mankind requires proper planning

and tact that is plentiful within the story. One who advises to such a degree

is indeed blessed with prudence - a blessing from Allah, not just for Luqman

but for anyone who takes him as a role-model.
