Ibn Hajar Al `Asqalani [Quotes]

Written by Ismat. Posted in Ibn Hajar Al `Asqalani

Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalaanee, may Allaah have mercy upon him, mentioned in the context of refuting the one who opposed that Ibn Taymiyyah be termed ‘Shaykhul-lslaam’:

The acclaim of Taqiyy ad-Deen is more renown than that of the Sun and titling him Shaykhul-Islaam of his era remains until our time upon the virtuous tongues. It will continue tomorrow just as it was yesterday. No one refutes this but a person who is ignorant of his prestige or one who turns away from equity.”

Ar-Radd al-Waafir, pg 144. This statement of Ibn Hajar, may Allaah have mercy upon him, is included towards the end of the book Ar-Radd al-Waafir. Ibn Hajar was one of the scholars who wrote an approval of the book Ar-Radd al-Waafir by Ibn Naasir ad-Deen ad-Dimashqee (d. 842), which contains scholarly praise and accounts of Ibn Taymiyyah by more than 80 scholars. It was written in refutation of the unjust, partisan, oppressive and ignorant statement ‘Whoever refers to Ibn Taymiyyah as Shaykhul-Islam is a Kaafir’!
