About the Book: Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728/1328) is one of the most fascinating scholars from medieval Islamic civilization, acknowledged for his intellectual brilliance by both his admirers and his detractors. His readiness to present his own scholarly interpretations of scripture, and his instinctive rejection of much of the received wisdom of his day, mark him out as one of the most original thinkers of Islam, and indeed, one of the most incisive minds in human history. This collection, a commentary on a brief sampling of Ibn Taymiyyah’s writings, represents a drop in the ocean of his multifaceted scholarly legacy. The reader is given a taste of this scholar’s views on theology, worship, spirituality, law, reason, revelation, and much else that is sure to enrich the reader’s understanding of Islam. About the Author: Dr Mustafa Sheikh is a Lecturer in Islamic studies at the Univeristy of Leeds, where he is also the Co-Director of the University’s Iqbal Centre for the Study of Contemporary Islam. He completed his traditional Islamic studies in the Middle East, and his MSt and DPhil at Oxford University. He is one of the UK’s authorities on the thought of Ibn Taymiyyah.   “refreshingly accurate… highly engaging, with elegant commentary, and adorned with footnotes referencing materials for further study.” – Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, Dean of Academic Affairs, Al Maghrib Institute.

    A spectacular collection of Ibn Taymiyyah’s (May Allah have mercy on him) famous words that are ever-gold, never to grow old with time. It is a book that makes you love and respect these scholars not just for the men they were but for the ideals and standards they left for us. A long way for us to go but there is hope. A MUST READ!
