Product description

This short theological tract, Fi Nafi al-Jiha, or On Denying Direction to God, by the Ashari theologian and celebrated Shafi'i jurist, Qadi Ibn Jahbal (d. 733/1333), is a clinical rebuttal of the controversial fatwa, the Aqida Hamawiyya, penned by his legendary contemporary, Ibn Taymiyya (d. 728/1328). It is considered, rightly, a classic manifesto of anti-literalism, which will be an indispensable reference for advanced students of Islamic theology, other professional theologians, and modern academics needing primary source materials in English or a source book on the controversies surrounding Ibn Taymiyya's theology.

A useful book on a fundamental Islamic doctrine regarding the fact that Allah is unlike his creation and does not exist in a place.

This book consists not only of a translation of a contemporary refutation of the theology of ibn Taymiyya but it also consists of a number of opinions and rulings from contemporary scholars of his time regarding his teachings, some of them by his own students and followers such as adh Dhahabi.

I actually thought this book may be quite heavy going but the translator has done a pretty good job in putting this in simple English and avoiding over complicating the translation by using vague words or terminology. That being said, some knowledge of basic Islamic theology will be of some use before reading this book.

Excellent book for clarification, refutation of anthropomotheism (liking Allah to his creation) it is a condensed work for those who love to delve into the details of things, in this case, fine matters of Aqidah and attributes of Allah.
