Ḥakīma (Arabic: حکیمة, d. 274/887-88) was the daughter of Imam al-Jawad (a). She lived in the periods of four Shiite Imams (a): Imam al-Jawad (a), Imam al-Hadi (a), Imam al-Hasan al-'Askari (a), and Imam al-Mahdi (a). She was alive until the Major Occultation. She was in charge of educating and training Narjis, the mother of Imam al-Mahdi (a). She witnessed the birth of Imam al-Mahdi (a). According to Shiite sources, Hakima met Imam al-Mahdi (a) during his Minor Occultation and played the role of a connection between the Imam (a) and people. She transmitted some hadiths from Imam al-Mahdi (a). She was admired by Shiite scholars and historians as a pious person. Her grave is located in Samarra in the Holy Shrine of al-'Askariyyayn.
