About the Author :
Imam `Abd al-Rahman ibn Abu al-Faraj ibn al-Jawzi al-Baghdadi al-Hanbali al-Ash`ari (509/510-597). He was, with Sayyadina Shaykh `Abd al-Qadir al-Gilani, may Allah Almighty sanctify his secret, the Imam of the Hanbalis' and foremost orator of kings and princes in his time whose gatherings reportedly reached one hundred thousand, a hadith master, philologist, commentator of Qur'an, expert jurist, physician, and historian of superb character and exquisite manners.
Orphaned of his father at age three, Ibn al-Jawzi was raised by his aunt who later brought him to the hadith scholar Ibn Nasir, his first shaykh. He took hadith from him as well as over eighty shaykhs and was teacher to his grandson Shams al-Din Yusuf ibn Qazghali al-Hanafi - Sibt al-Jawzi - as well as some of the greatest Hanbali hadith masters and jurists such as Muwaffaq al-Din Ibn Qudama, Ibn al-Najjar, and Diya' al-Din al-Maqdisi, may Allah have mercy upon them all.
Ibn al-Jawzi took a staunch Ash`ari stance in doctrine and courageously denounced the anthropomorphism of his school in the interpretation of the divine Attributes in his landmark work Daf` Shubah al-Tashbih bi Akuff al-Tanzih ("Rebuttal of the Insinuations of Anthropomorphism at the Hands of Divine Transcendence"), also known as al-Baz al-Ashhab al-Munqadd `ala Mukhalifi al-Madhhab ("The Flaming Falcon Swooping Down on the Dissenters of the [Hanbali] School").
Selection of Ibn al-Jawzi's works.
