IBN TAYMIYYAH AND (some of) HIS ERRORS

IBN TAYMIYYAH AND (some of) HIS ERRORS

“*Ibn Taymiyah claimed that Hellfire will end- something an ignorant Wahhabiyy denies, and an evasive Wahhabiyy makes excuses for. He has a book with a misleading title: The Refutation Against Whoever Claims that Paradise and Hell are Finite. What he actually wants to say is that only Hell is Finite, not that both Paradise and Hell are finite. He said therein:
مع أن القائلين ببقائها ليس معهم كتاب و لا سنة و لا أقوال الصحابة

“Those who claim that Hell will remain have no evidence from the Book, the Sunnah or the statements of the Companions.”

Then how about this verse from the Book:

{(خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا أَبَدًا)}

<<They will be in it forever and ever>>,

or this statement from the Prophet:
وَلِأَهْلِ النَّارِ يَا أَهْلَ النَّارِ خُلُودٌ لَا مَوْتَ

“(and it will be said) to the people of Hell, “O, People of Hell, everlastingness without death”. ”?

*Ibn Taymiyah was the first to prohibit making tawassul by the Prophet, as mentioned by Taqiyyu-d-Diyn As-Subkiyy, in his book Shifa’u-s-Saqam. He said: “Know that it is permissible and good to make tawassul, to seek help (istiˆanah), and to seek intercession (tashaffuˆ) by the Prophet ﷺ to one’s Lord, the glorified and exalted. The permissibility and goodness of that is known by every religious person. It is known by the doings of the Prophets and Messengers, and the biographies of the righteous Salaf, and no one has denied that from any religion, and the denial of it was never heard of at any time in history until Ibn Taymiyah came and spoke about it with speech by which he fooled those who are weak and inexperienced. He innovated what was not preceded before him at any time in history.”

*Ibn Taymiyah said:

فَلَا مَجَازَ فِي الْقُرْآنِ, بَلْ وَتَقْسِيمُ اللُّغَةِ إلَى حَقِيقَةٍ وَمَجَازٍ تَقْسِيمٌ مُبْتَدَعٌ مُحْدَثٌ لَمْ يَنْطِقْ بِهِ السَّلَفُ

“There is no figurative speech in the Qur’an. In fact, dividing the language into “literal speech” and “figurative speech” is an innovated categorization. It was never uttered by the Salaf.”

This denial in reality is a fabrication and a fib, but to them, it is necessary for their creed, and they only deny figurative speech because of the perversion in their hearts: their incredible attachment to likening Allah to the creations. Let us settle with a few clear examples and references. Allah describes His Prophet in the Qur’an as:

{(سِرَاجًا مُنِيرًا)}

<<A luminous lantern>>

If there is no figurative speech in the Qur’an, then the Prophet must be a literal lamp, which is not true because he is a human being. The actual meaning is that the Prophet eradicates the darkness of blasphemy and is a reason for misguided people to become guided. In the Qur’an, Allah described a wall as:

{(جِدَارًا يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَنْقَضَّ)}

<<A wall that wants to fall>>.

If there is no figurative speech in the Qur’an, then that wall would have to literally been ascribed with a will, which is an attribute of the living. This verse gives the wall the image of something living and willing, so to portray its leaning over as if it is ready to fall. Taking this verse literally would necessitate confirming that the wall was alive. Lastly, Allah informed us in His book:

{(نِسَاؤُكُمْ حَرْثٌ لَكُمْ)}
<<Your women are plots of land for your cultivation>>.

Therefore, according those who deny figurative speech in the Book of Allah or the sayings of His prophet, the women are actual plots of land, and not humans made of flesh and blood. The verse actually contains a metaphor that refers to the impregnation of women.

So, just as it is known to us that these texts should not be taken literally, it is known that nothing in the Qur’an or the hadiths that would seemingly ascribe organs, places, directions or motion to Allah should be taken literally.

*Ibn Taymiyah, contradicted himself when he said:

أَنَّهُ فَوْقَ الْعَرْشِ وَأَنَّهُ يَنْزِلُ إلَى السَّمَاءِ الدُّنْيَا وَلَا يَخْلُو مِنْهُ الْعَرْشُ

“He is above the ˆArsh, and He descends down to the sky, but the ˆArsh is never devoid of Him. ” It is unacceptable to the sound mind that Allah would be on the ˆArsh above the sky, then descend down to the sky, and still upon the ˆArsh.

*Ibn Taymiyah went to claim the existence of the types of things eternally with Allah. He said in his book Minhaj As-Sunnah An-Nabawiyyah:

وإن جاز أن يكون نوع الحوادث دائما لم يزل فإن الأزل ليس هو عبارة عن شيء محدد بل ما من وقت يقدر إلا وقبله وقت آخر

“… Even though it is valid that the creations in their kind would be everlasting, beginningless, for eternity is not an expression of something specific. Instead, there is no moment of time, except that before it there was another moment… ” Does not Ibn Taymiyah know that time is a creation of Allah, and hence was preceded by non-existence? If that expression is not clear enough, then here is his statement from his book called: Muwafaqatu Sahih Al-Manqul liSarih Al-Maˆqul:

فإن الأزلي هو نوع الحادث لا عين الحادث

“Because the eternal one is the type of the creation, not the created thing itself.” He said this is about seven books. This creed of Ibn Taymiyah is a shameful exposure and a confirmation of his belief that something existed with Allah eternally, which is shirk.

*Ibn Taymiyah commited kufr and shirk when he likened the Prophet to Allah when he said in supporting his sick creed:

العرش لم يمتلئ به وأنه يقعد نبيه عليه السلام معه على العرش

“The Throne does not get filled up by Allah, and He sits His Prophet with Him on the Throne.” What ugly blasphemy, and O, what a vicious exposure. This is in his book called Bayan Talbis Al-Jahmiyyah, and he says the same in Majmu^ Al-Fatawa.

As long as this post is, this is a summary. The old scholars said he deviated in more than 60 cases, and our brothers have followed up more than 100 cases. he is BATTY, crazy…there is so much more. He says that Allah has sides from all directions. He said that Allah is the father in the sky. He said Allah can sit on a mosquito. He said travelling to visit the Prophet’s grave is shirk. He said Allah is imaginable. He said….”

This was compiled by one of the shaykhs.  It clearly demonstrates to anyone whose mind is not blinded by partisanship that Ibn Taymiyyah was a deviant of the worst kind and far removed from Ahlus-Sunnah.  Also, Ibn Taymiyyah is the ideological forefather of the Wahhabi movement (so-called “Salafis”).  Again, please be warned of them and their pagan blood lust ideology.
