Of humble origin, Ibn al-Qayyim's father was the principal qayyim of the School of Jawziyya , which also served as a court of law for the Hanbali judge of Damascus during the time period. Ibn al-Qayyim's main teacher was the scholar Ibn Taymiyyah.
Ibn al-Qayyim was imprisoned along with his teacher Ibn Taymiyyah. According to the historian al-Maqrizi , two reasons led to his arrest: the first was a sermon Ibn al-Qayyim had delivered in Jerusalem in which he decried the visitation of holy graves, including the Prophet Muhammad's grave in Medina, the second was his agreement with Ibn Taymiyyah's view on the matter of divorce, which contradicted the view of the majority of scholars in Damascus.
The campaign to have Ibn al-Qayyim imprisoned was led by Shafi'i and Maliki scholars, and was also joined by the Hanbali and Hanafi judges. Whilst in prison Ibn al-Qayyim busied himself with the Qur'an.
According to Ibn Rajab , Ibn al-Qayyim made the most of his time of imprisonment: the immediate result of his delving into the Qur'an while in prison was a series of mystical experiences described as dhawq , direct experience of the divine mysteries, and mawjud, ecstasy occasioned by direct encounter with the Divine Reality.
He expressed his love and appreciation for Ansari in this commentary with his statement "Certainly I love the Sheikh, but I love the truth more! Politics portal. Like his teacher Ibn Taymiyya , Ibn Qayyim, supported broad powers for the state and prosecution. He argued, for example, "that it was often right to punish someone of lowly status" who alleged improper behavior by someone "more respectable.
Ibn Qayyim "formulated evidential theories" that made judges "less reliant than ever before on the oral testimony. If a woman sought a divorce on the grounds of her husband's impotence and her husband contested the claim, a judge might obtain a sample of the husband's ejaculate. According to Ibn Qayyim "only genuine semen left a white residue when boiled". In interrogating the accused, Ibn Qayyim believed that testimony could be beaten out of suspects if they were "disreputable".
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah opposed alchemy and divination of all varieties, but was particularly opposed to astrology , whose practitioners dared to "think they could know secrets locked within the mystery of God's supreme and all-embracing wisdom. In his Miftah Dar al-Sa'adah , in addition to denouncing the astrologers as worse than infidels, he uses empirical arguments to refute the practice of alchemy and astrology along with the theories associated with them, such as divination and the transmutation of metals , for example arguing:.
And if you astrologers answer that it is precisely because of this distance and smallness that their influences are negligible, then why is it that you claim a great influence for the smallest heavenly body, Mercury? Why is it that you have given an influence to al-Ra's and al-Dhanab, which are two imaginary points [ascending and descending nodes]?
It is also true, however, that Ibn al-Qayyim did indeed share some of his teacher Ibn Taymiyyah's more negative sentiments towards what he perceived to be excesses in mystical practice.
As a result, he rejected Ibn Arabi's concept of wahdat al-wajud or the "oneness of being,  " and opposed, moreover, some of the more extreme "forms of Sufism that had gained currency particularly in the new seat of Muslim power, Mamluk Egypt and Syria.
They are those who swear at Allah swt the Creator in a way no other human has sworn at Allah swt. The base of their Aqeedah and their biggest curse against Allah swt is the Trinity. They claim the Almighty Allah came down from His great chair and melted in the womb of Mariam as , until He was killed and buried at the hands of man. Its Deen is the worship of the cross; its supplication is for the images that are drawn on the wall, in red and yellow colours. Their Deen is to drink alcohol, eat pork, desert circumcision, worship with impurity and eat everything, even if it is filthy, whether that be the elephant or the mosquito.
What is lawful and unlawful is what their priests say; the priests can take them to heaven and forgive their sins. Ibn Qayyim was respected by a number of scholars during and after his life. Ibn Kathir stated that Ibn al-Qayyim,. He was never envious of anyone, nor did he hurt anyone. He never disgraced anyone, nor did he hate anyone.
I do not know in this world in our time someone who is more dedicated to acts of devotion . Ibn Rajab , one of Ibn Qayyim's students, stated that,. Although, he was by no means infallible, no one could compete with him in the understanding of the texts.
He was praised by many Sunni scholars and is still praised and highly regarded as a pious believer today. He "wrote about a hundred books",  including:. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya
This blessed book is not like others that simply contain sections, chapters and themes, but it consists of the elevated thoughts that Allah, Exalted be He, bestows upon some of His servants as He wills. So whenever any of these scattered pearls of wisdom occurred to the Imam, he would immediately record them. I am sure that he did not sit down and write this book in one or two weeks, but surely it was developed over a long period of time. Whenever something came to his mind, he would record it, and whenever he learnt a lesson or anything crucial in his life, he would illuminate the lines of his page with the ink of his pen.
