This study is about the concept of Hukm in the Qur'an. It follows a thematic method of analysis, collecting the occurrences of the root H-k-m in the Qur'an. Its concern is to explore the meanings of the root H-k-m and its derivatives as they occur in the Qur'an. The thesis consists of two parts, based on the two main meanings of the word Hukm. Part One, which consists of two chapters, discusses the meaning of Hukm as judgement. Chapter One focuses on judgement by God, while Chapter Two centres on judgement by others. Part Two consists of one chapter (Chapter Three) and aims at exploring the concept of wisdom as signified by derivatives of the root H-k-m. The thesis also gives consideration to other elements displayed by the occurrences of the root H-k-m. It aims to collect scattered information and build up a picture of the meanings of the word Hukm and their interrelationship with the other terms in the Qur'an. The thesis is thus a contribution towards solving the ambiguities in classical exegesis with regard to the meanings of the word Hukm, as well as correcting misunderstandings of the implications of this term in some modern scholarship.
