Al-Hikmah or wisdom means a total insight and having sound judgment concerning a matter or situation through understanding cause and effect phenomena. Al-Hikmah constitutes one of the three major teachings of Prophet Muhammad.

Each category is dependent upon the other. These three fundamental teachings combined are the foundations required to make the character of a true Muslim.
