In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Imām al-Dhahabī (رحمه الله) said: “Our shaykh, Ibn Taymiyyah (رحمه الله), used to say in his final days before death overtook him: ‘I do not excommunicate anyone from this Ummah.’ He would say: ‘The Prophet (ﷺ) said: ‘Only a believer maintains his wuḍūʿ; therefore, whoever performs his prayers consistently is a Muslim.’”
قال: وكذا كان شيخنا ابن تيمية في أواخر أيامه يقول: أنا لا أكفر أحدا من الأمة، ويقول: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: "لا يحافظ على الوضوء إلا مؤمن" فمن لازم الصلوات بوضوء فهو مسلم

The Verdicts of al-Dhahabī, Ibn Ḥajr, Ibn Taymīyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim and others
A small collection of statements of the salaf against Ibn Sīnā, a philosopher who made many statements of kufr. Unfortunately, he is considered by some to be from the great scholars of the past. The statements of al-Dhahabī and his contemporaries suggest the opposite.
