Taqi ad-Din Ahmad ibn Taymiyyah (January 22, 1263--1328), full name: Taqī ad-Dīn Abu 'l-ʿAbbās Aḥmad ibn ʿAbd al-Ḥalīm ibn ʿAbd as-Salām Ibn Taymiya al-Ḥarrānī (Arabic: تقي الدين أبو العباس أحمد بن عبد السلام بن عبد الله ابن تيمية الحراني‎), was a famous Islamic scholar, theologian and logician born in Harran, located in what is now Turkey, close to the Syrian border. He lived during the troubled times of the Mongol invasions. As a member of the school founded by Ibn Hanbal, he sought the return of Islam to its sources, the Qur'an and the Sunnah.
Quotes:
"What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, inseparable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; execution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel."
"The perfection of tawhid is found when there remains nothing in the heart except [the remembrance of] Allah, the servant is left loving those He loves and what He loves, hating those He hates and what He hates, showing allegiance to those He has allegiance to, showing enmity to those He shows enmity towards, ordering what He orders and prohibiting what He prohibits." - Sheikh Ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah
Ibn Taymiyyah left a considerable body of work (350 works listed by his student Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya and 500 by other student al-Dhahabi) that has been republished extensively in Syria, Egypt, Arabia, and India. His work extended and justified his religious and political involvements and was characterized by its rich content, sobriety, and skillful polemical style. Extant books and essays written by ibn Taymiyyah include: * A Great Compilation of Fatwa—(Majmu al-Fatwa al-Kubra) This was collected centuries after his death, and contains several of the works mentioned below. * Minhaj as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah—(The Pathway of as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah)—Volumes 1--4 * Majmoo' al-Fatawa—(Compilation of Fatawa) Volumes 1--36 * al-Aqeedah Al-Hamawiyyah—(The Creed to the People of Hamawiyyah) * al-Aqeedah Al-Waasittiyah—(The Creed to the People of Waasittiyah) * al-Asma wa's-Sifaat—(Allah's Names and Attributes) Volumes 1--2 * 'al-Iman—(Faith) * al-Jawab as Sahih li man Baddala Din al-Masih (Literally, "The Correct Response to those who have Corrupted the Deen (Religion) of the Messiah"; A Muslim theologian's response to Christianity)—seven volumes, over a thousand pages. * as-Sarim al-Maslul 'ala Shatim ar-Rasul—The Drawn Sword against those who insult the Messenger. Written in response to an incident in which Ibn Taymiyyah heard a Christian insulting Muhammad. The book is well-known because he wrote it entirely by memory, while in jail, and quoting more than hundreds of references. * Fatawa al-Kubra * Fatawa al-Misriyyah * ar-Radd 'ala al-Mantiqiyyin (Refutation of Greek Logicians) * Naqd at-Ta'sis * al-Uboodiyyah—(Subjection to Allah) * Iqtida' as-Sirat al-Mustaqim'—(Following The Straight Path) * al-Siyasa al-shar'iyya * at-Tawassul wal-Waseela * Sharh Futuh al-Ghayb—(Commentary on Revelations of the Unseen by Abdul-Qadir Gilani)

Some of his other works have been translated to English. They include: * The Friends of Allah and the Friends of Shaytan * Kitab al Iman: The Book of Faith * Diseases of the Hearts and their Cures * The Relief from Distress * Fundamentals of Enjoining Good & Forbidding Evil * The Concise Legacy * The Goodly Word * The Madinan Way * Ibn Taymiyya against the Greek logicians
