Ibn Taymiyyah’s Letters from Prison
This book contains a collection of letters demonstrating a side of the personality of Shaykh al-Islam ibn Taymiyyah which is not commonly recognized. Usually, it is his tough and uncompromising stances and his truthful, sometimes harsh retorts that are remembered. However, as this work demonstrates he was also a concerned son, a devoted teacher and a passionate defender of the religion. These letters were selected and introduced by Shaykh Muhammad Sulayman al-Abdah.Born in Syria in 1941, and now residing in London, he has taught in the religious institutes and the Islamic University of Madinah. He now devotes his time to work in Islamic Da’wah.
