Ahkam - see 'Rulings'.

See also: Rulings
(Ahkam). Orders or determinations or laws or rulings. Allah has set down these ahkam in His Sacred Law. Certain gnostic sciences are contained within these rulings but they are not unveiled unless the rulings are put into practice. This is due to His Manifest property being stronger than His Non-manifest property in relation to creation. We, the humans, accompany only Allah's rulings (Ahkam), not Allah, because Allah is with us but we are not with Allah. Allah knows us, but we do not know Allah.
