Ibn Taymiyya On Causality and Reliance on God (HC)

By: Ibn Taymiyya (d. 728/1328) / Tr, Intro: Zeni, Tallal M.

Language: English


This book expounds upon Ibn Taymiyya’s theology, with an important selection from his works which affirm causality and the efficacy of causes, whilst also clarifying that one should only rely on God and affirm predestination. The extracts also show his emphasis on the necessity of striving for both religious and worldly good outcomes, and that one of the causes leading to good is supplication to God with sincerity. The extensive introduction expands on the text and provides a deeper exposition of Ibn Taymiyya’s theology, as well as providing context and the nuances for some of the more complex aspects of his thought so as to allow for reconciliation.

More Information

Ibn Taymiyya (661/1263—728/1328) was one of the most eminent scholars of his time and is considered by some to be a Reviver of Islam. Ibn Taymiyya followed in the footsteps of the Righteous Predecessors (al-salaf al-ṣāliḥ), and ultimately maintained that authentic revelation and sound reason are always harmonious and concordant. While elaborating his theology he sought to repudiate the philosophers, speculative theologians (mutakallimūn) and monists.

Tallal M. Zeni is a surgeon, writer and researcher who has an interest in traditional Islamic theology. He has translated selections from two writings of Ibn al-Qayyim titled «Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya on Knowledge» and «Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya on Divine Wisdom and the Problem of Evil». He has also written a work on the problem of evil titled «Revival of Piety Through an Islamic Theodicy».
