Benefit: Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah on Reading the Books of the Innovators
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymīyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, commented on one of the most famous explanations of the Qurʾān from the Muʿtazilah entitled, "al-Kashāf". This tafsīr has been read by many, both in the past and the present who fell for the high level of eloquence and literature in this book. Similarly, today we find many reading and quoting from the deviant Sayyid Qutb and his misguided tafsīr, "In the Shade of the Qurʾān" (Fī Zilal al-Qurʾān). Again, people are not basing this on its concurrence to the sunnah, but rather they are attached to the eloquence exhibited by the author.
