Illuminationist philosophy (Arabic: حكمة الإشراق ḥikmat al-ishrāq, Persian حكمت اشراق hikmat-i ishrāq) is an Iranian philosophy and Islamic philosophy first developed by Shahab al-Din Suhrawardi (1155–1191), the famous Persian philosopher.

This school draws on Avicennism (Ibn Sina’s early Islamic philosophy), Neoplatonic thought (modified by Ibn Sina), ancient Iranian philosophical disciplines, and the original ideas of Suhrawardi.

In logic in Islamic philosophy, systematic refutations of Greek logic were written by the Illuminationist school founded by Suhrawardi, who developed the idea of "decisive necessity", an important innovation in the history of logical philosophical speculation.[1]
