Imam Ibn Taymiyyah | Salafi Publications
“What a splendid Soorah is Sooratul-Kawthar! How abundant are its benefits even though it is short in length. The reality of its meaning is known from its ending, where Allaah, the One free from all imperfections and the Most High, severs the one having hatred for His Messenger from all good. So Allaah severs and deprives him of renown, his family and wealth, such that he loses all of that in the Hereafter.”
THE AUTHOR: lmaam Ibn Katheer, the author of the famous commentary of Qur’aan, said about his teacher Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, “And the least he would do when he heard something was to memorise it and then engage himself in learning it. He was intelligent and had committed much to memory. He became an Imaam in tafseer and everything related to it. He was also knowledgeable in fiqh. And it was said that he was more knowledgeable of the fiqh of the madhhabs than the followers of those very same madhhabs, (both) in his time and other than his time. He was a scholar of the fundamentals (usool), the subsidiary issues (furoo’) of grammar, language and other textual and intellectual sciences. And no scholar of a science would speak to him except that he thought that the science was the speciality of Ibn Taymiyyah. As for hadeeth, n he was the carrier of its flag, a haafidh able to distinguish the weak from the strong and fully acquainted with the narrators.” Al-Bidaayah wa An-Nihaayah (14/118-119)
