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.

Allāh, The Most High bestowed Luqmān (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.

Hikmah..." [Luqmān (31): 12]

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 Allāh’s Message to mankind requires proper planning

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