Meaning of The Arabic Word عِلْم Ilm

Core meaning shades for the Arabic word Ilm عِلْم

Root : ع ل م

Pattern : فِعْل

Word : عِلْم

Correct, true, certain, authentic, established
knowledge, information
regarding a matter, thing, event etc.
to the extent/depth/spread indicated or required by the context (and context includes situation in which it is referred to and the being to whom it is attributed). 
If context indicates knowledge to the extent of knowing that something happened, then that is knowledge in this context. If context indicates knowledge to the extent of knowing the details of how something happened, then that is knowledge in that context and similarly for other extents, but it is undeniable and certain knowledge.
The main thing is that this is certain knowledge encompassing the required extent for the context in which it is referred to,
not assumption, ignorance, wishful thinking, unestablished/unproven/unverified information etc.
When used in reference to ALLAH, it represents complete and thorough knowledge to the minutest detail and covering knowledge of a thing for its entire existence i.e. for all times of its existence.
