Deceit of Iblis - Talbis Iblis

R 499


No doubt, Iblis is the most dangerous enemy of mankind, who caused Adam and Eve to come out of Paradise, and swore by the Honor of Allah that he would do his best to mislead men, and take them out of the straight path.
He, without doubt, will continue to do so relentlessly until the Day of Judgement.
This book "Talbis Iblis" (Deceit of Iblis) is of great importance and high value in the Islamic tradition because Ibn Al-Jawzi [may Allah have mercy upon him] discloses in it some of Iblis's strategies, tricks, approaches and deceits against many communities and sects of Muslims, whom he tempts, and puts to confusion about their religion. He makes errors and religious innovations fair-seeming to their eyes. Consequently, they have become deep-rooted in their minds like a religion which they believe in and act upon in all their life affairs.
The real value of this book, in my view, is that with each deceit he mentions, he clarifies its nature, and the best way to treat it.
I hope the reader and scholar will have a great benefit from reading and studying this book, Allah willing.

Ibn al-Jawzī, in full ʿAbd al-Rahmān ibn ʿAlī ibn Muhammad Abū al-Farash ibn al-Jawzī, (born 1126, Baghdad—died 1200, Baghdad), jurist, theologian, historian, preacher, and teacher who became an important figure in the Baghdad establishment and a leading spokesman of traditionalist Islam.

Ibn al-Jawzī received a traditional religious education, and, upon the completion of his studies, he chose a teaching career, becoming by 1161 the master of two religious colleges. A fervent adherent of Hanbalī doctrine (one of the four schools of Islamic law), he was a noted preacher whose sermons were conservative in viewpoint and supported the religious policies of the Baghdad ruling establishment. In return he was favoured by the caliphs, and by 1178/79 he had become the master of five colleges and the leading Hanbalī spokesman of Baghdad.

In the decade 1170–80 he attained the height of his power. Becoming a semiofficial inquisitor, he constantly searched for doctrinal heresies. He attacked and instigated persecutions against those who he felt had deviated from strict traditionalist Islam. He was particularly critical of Sufis (Muslim mystics) and of theologians who practiced Shīʿism (one of the two major branches of Islam). His zeal antagonized many liberal theologians. His power within the Baghdad establishment owed a great deal to his excellent relations with successive caliphs and their advisers. The arrest in 1194 of Ibn Yūnus, his old friend and patron, marked the end of Ibn al-Jawzī’s career and his close links with governmental circles. In that year he was arrested and exiled to the city of Wāsih. He was partially rehabilitated on the eve of his death and allowed to return to Baghdad.
