The name HAKIM is also selected with a purpose. Apart from being an acronym of Himpunan Keilmuan Muslim, the term ‘Hakim’, which is also one of the Beautiful Names of God (al-Asma’ al-Husna), is an attribute that reflects perfection in Divine Essence and which bears its stamps in the wonderful creation of God.
To a human being, this divine attribute of hakim, as pointed out by Imam al-Ghazali in his book Maqsad al-Athna fi Sharhi al-Asma’ al-Husna, can also be exemplified at their level in their ethical life as mentioned by the Prophetic hadith “takhallaqu bi akhlaqillah (mould yourselves following the attributes of Allah)”.
Hence, when the term HAKIM is chosen as acronym of our organization, it is with this purpose and definitely does not mean to place ourselves at the same level as the perfectly Wise God (al-Hakim). It is also to emphasize the paramount importance of possessing wisdom as a symbol of goodness as mentioned by the Qur’an, “Those have been given by God hikmah they are indeed being given abundant of goodness.” (wa man yu’ta al-hikmata fa qad utiya khayran kathira)
