“It is not correct to label the Kaafir as wise, because if he would be wise then he would be a Muslim.”

— Shaykh Sulayman Al-‘Alwan

Proof?

Amr ibn Hishām was the wisest person, therefore, they named him Abul Hakam (Father of wisdom) but Rasulullah sallillahu alaihi was sallam named him Abu Jahl (Father of ignorance)
