Abstract: 

The fundamental concept of divine Wisdom grew out of deep discussions on God's Knowledge and it can be properly analyzed when related arguments about the purpose, agency and Providence of God are also treated and truly understood. Of Islamic Philosophers, Avicenna was the first to give a conceptual clarification of the divine Wisdom and explain its constituent elements. In analyzing and scrutinizing this concept, he refers to three components of knowledge, efficacy and pleasure contained in the notion of divine Wisdom. In order to explain the Wisdom of God, however, Ibn Sina appeals to other propositions in terms of his philosophical system including "the principle that the higher being does not care about the lower, " providential agency of Necessary Being, Knowledge by providence, act of knowledge by Necessary Being, order of causes and effects, essential goodness of Being.
