Did Ibn Taymiyyah deviate from the creed of ahl as-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaah?

The scholars of the Standing Committee were asked:

People say that Ibn Taymiyah was not one of Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah, and that he was misled and misled others, and that this is the view of Ibn Hajar and others. Is what they say true or not?

They replied:

Shaykh Ahmad ibn ‘Abd al-Haleem Ibn Taymiyah is one of the imams of Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah, who called people to the truth and to the straight path. Allaah supported the Sunnah by means of him and suppressed the followers of innovation and deviation. The one who regards him as something other than that is the one who is an innovator and is misled and is misleading others. They heard wrong things about him, and they thought that truth was falsehood and falsehood was truth. That is known by the one whom Allaah guides and who reads his books and the books of his opponents, and compares his biography with theirs. This is the best and most decisive testimony between the two parties.

Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz, Shaykh ‘Abd al-Razzaaq ‘Afeefi, Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Ghadyaan, Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Qa’ood.

  1. I read many write ups by Sheikhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah and found him to be one of the few ones who Allah (SWT) used in preserving the Aqeedah of Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jama’a. May Allah reward him with Jannah for the wonderful contribution he did to Islam

  2. Ibn taymiyah is not a sunni scholar as imam jalaluddin Suyuti R.A issued the fatwa of kufr on him,he wrote that going to haj having the intention that one will also go to rauza anwar of our Huzur sallalaaho alaih wasallam in madina is haraa,astaghfirullah

    • Assalamu alaykum,

      May Allah bless the author and the owner of this website.
      I would like to ask the brother who said Ibn Taymiyah was not Suni, to go and seek knowledge and leave taasub and blind following of sufism.
      And anyone who issued a fatwa of kufr on him, then the Kufr will turn on him insha a Allaah as per hadith of the Prophet alayhi salatu wa salaam.

      I won’t go beyond the fact and reality to say that, shaikh al Islam was a reformer, mujahid, great faqih, muhadith, mufassir and one of the knowledgeable people the history of Islam has witnessed.

      His students (Ibn al Qayyim, Ibn Kathir, adh-Dhahabi) are among the proof of his great knowledge.

      I rank him with 4 Imams of Ahl Sunnah, i.e Abu Hanifah, Maalik, Shafi’iy & Ibn Hanbal.

      May Allah reward him with Jannat al-Firdaws insha a Allaah.

  3. check out this video and read the books written by Ibn Taymiyah mentioned in the video, this should make you realize the truth

  4. Allah placed a great love of sheikh ul islam ibn taymiyyah in my heart, i love him for da sake of allah…my allah reward him and give him jannah, and my allah guide us and forgive us, specially me as i’ve wronged myself. My Allah for give my parents and yours and give them jannah.
