ABOUT THIS SITE Welcome to IbnTaymiyyah.Com. Ibn Taymiyyah is a much misunderstood figure around whom there is much controversy, doubt and misconception. The primary reason is because in an era of great departure from the Prophetic Sunnah, Ibn Taymiyyah reconnected the Ummah to the creed and methodology of the Salaf and in the process rebutted the various factions, from the Philosophers, Raafidah, Jahmites, Mu'tazilites, Ash'arites, Baatiniyyah, Qaraamitah, Christians and many others. Thus, enmity and animosity came to him from many different sectarian orientations. Conversely, there are also those who try to support their own misguidance by attachment to Ibn Taymiyyah and his writings, in particular the takfiris and Kharijites. This website is aimed at repelling the various doubts regarding Ibn Taymiyyah and his views. The picture is of a deserted region in Harran, Ibn Taymiyyah's birthplace, in South-East Turkey near to Syria.
