In Islam there is no philosophy as it is known by the Greek and others, for it leads to infidelity; we seek refuge in Allah from that. But if you are referring to wisdom, then the whole Sunnah of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon Him is wisdom and cannot be called philosophy. I refer you to the Fatwa of Sheikh Mohammad Saalih Al-Munajjid (the ruling of studying philosophy), which you will find useful if Allah willse. Thank you.

ليس فى الاسلام فلسفة بالمعنى المفهوم عند اليونانيين وغيرهم ، لانها تؤدى الى الكفر والعياذ بالله ، اما اذا قلت انها الحكمة فكل سنة النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم حكمة ولا يطلق عليها فلسفة وأحيلك الى فتوى الشيخ محمد صالح المنجد (حكم دراسة الفلسفة) ففيها الغنية ان شاء الله تعالى. وشكرا
