Ibn Taymiyyah’s Writings:
The books of Shaikhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah cover varied fields of learning. They are an invaluable source of knowledge because of the strength of argument in them in conveying the beliefs, explaining the principles and defending the way of the pious predecessors. Ibn Taymiyyah's comprehensive knowledge of the different opinions of various sects and scholars, and his enumerating of proofs from the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and the sayings of the Salaf as-Salih qualify his books to be highly authoritative works. And despite the fact that a proportion of his writings have perished, we find a great number of his writings still in existence. Some of his works are:
Dar Ta'aarud al-'Aql wa an-Naql (Repulsion of the conflict of intellect and the text - a reply on the people of Kalaam)
Iqtidaa' as-Siraat al-Mustaqeem Li Mukhaalafah As-haab al-Jaheem
Naqd Maraatib al-ljmaa'
as-Saarim al-Maslool 'alaa Shaatim ar-Rasool

Ibn Taymiyyah passed away while in prison in the year 728H. His
funeral was one of the rare funerals like that of Imam Ahmed Ibn Hambal, who
used to say, 'Say to the people of bidah, 'Between us and between you are the
Al-Bazzar says, 'Once the people had heard of his death, not a single person in
Damascus who was able to attend the prayer and wanted to, remained until he
appeared and took time out for it. As a result, the markets in Damascus were
closed and all transactions of livelihood were stopped. Governors, heads,
scholars, jurists came out. They say that none of the majority of the people
failed to turn up, according to my knowledge - except three individuals; they
were well known for their enmity for Ibn Taymiyyah and thus, hid away from the
people out of fear for their lives.' [Al-A'lam al-'Aliyyah, p.82-83]
