Description by the Publisher

This text is among the remnants os Shaykh-ul-Islam IBN TAYMIYAH that are among his handwritings which are being published for the first time in seven centuries; it deals with the topic of the Qutb, the Abdal and the Awtad, a topic that is widespread among Sufis and Laymen ever since the fourth century due to influence of some foreign cultures spread among the Islamic society, and based on some false Ahadith fabricated upon the Prophet (PBUH).

 Certainly, this doctrine had some negative effects upon the Islamic society, as a lot of people attached themselves to the Ghawth, Qutb , Abdal and Awtad, and they started to think when a hardship affects the inhabitants of the earth, the inferior ( in these level of saints ) would raise this matter to the superior, until it reaches the ghawth, and he does not raise his eyes except that this hard ship is removed; some of them even claimed that the assistance to the inhabitants of the earth, including the angels , birds and fishes, comes from the direction, all good is diffused to entire the creation through his intermediary, that he confers kingship and the friendship (Wilayah) of Allah to whomever he wills, that he takes away from whomever he wants , and many other false claims that attribute to the Qutb and Ghawth some aspects of divinity and lordship, and this is among the greatest of lies, impossibilities, polytheism, misguidance and heresy.

Considering the danger of this doctrine and the harm caused by its spread and propagation to the creed of the laymen and the elite, some scholars stood debate this doctrine and refuse it, explaining what it conatins from opposition to reason and the Shari’ah ( religious law ), criticizing the Ahadith upon whic the Sufis base themselves .  Shaykh-ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyah was the one having the strongest speech on this issue and the greatest refutation of this doctrine. This book before you is the largest epistle that he wrote on this subject.

Note By Kitaabun:
Although it is refuting the concept of
 Gawth, Qutb, Abdal And Awtad, One will learn a lot about  what some of the classical scholars say about this concept. 

About Ibn Taymiyah
Shaykh al-Islam Taqi ud-Din Abu'l-Abbas Ahmad Ibn al-Halim ibn Abd al-Salam Ibn Taymiyah al-Hanbali was born in , 661 AH (1263 AC) in Haran, which is now in Eastern Turkey, near the border of northern Iraq..
His family had long been renowned for its learning , among his teachers, was Shams ud-Din Al-Maqdisi, first Hanbali Chief Justice of Syria following the reform of the judiciary by Baibars. The number of Ibn Taimiyah's teachers exceeds two hundred. Ibn Taimiyah was barely seventeen, when Qadi Al-Maqdisi authorized him to issue Fatwa (legal verdict). Qadi remembered with pride that it was he who had first permitted an intelligent and learned man like Ibn Taimiyah to give Fatwa. At the same age, he started delivering lectures. When he was thirty, he was offered the office of Chief Justice, but refused, as he could not persuade himself to follow the limitations imposed by the authorities.
Imam Ibn Taimiyah's education was essentially that of a Hanbali theologian and jurisconsult. But to his knowledge of early and classical Hanbalism, he added not only that of the other schools of jurisprudence but also that of other literature.
He had an extensive knowledge of Quran, Sunnah, Greek philosophy, Islamic history, and religious books of others, as is evident from the variety of the books he wrote.
