“Ali fought to secure obedience and rule the people and money,
so how can that be deemed as fighting for sake of religion?”

He said: In his handwriting, a book of Ahmad Ibn Taymiyah, who was contemporary with us, which he called"Kitab-ul-‘Arsh",
I read: Allah sits on al-Kursi and has left a space for the Messenger of Allah to sit with Him.
At-Taj Muhammad Ibn ‘AliIbn ‘Abdil-Haqq al-Baranbari pretended that he is a promoter of his ideas and tricked him, until he took it from him; we read that in it. [The author of "Kashf-uz-Zunun" reported that about him also in Volume 2, page 1438.]
The editor of as-Sa‘adah Printing House told me that he found it very ugly and he omitted it upon printing so that the enemies of al-'Islam would not use it. Then he requested that I record that here to catch up what he missed and out of sincerity to the Muslims.
Refuting Ibn Taymiyya
Al-Hafiz Shaykhu-l-Islam Taqiyyu-d-Din 'Ali Ibn 'Abdi-l-Kafi as-Subki, radi Allahu 'anh, wrote in "Ad-Durratu-l-Mudiyyah":
which was published in Damascus in 1347 (1929) together with his Bayan zaghal al-`ilm.
Ibn Hajar mentioned Dhahabi's Nasiha in al-Durar al-kamina (1:166), and so did al-Sakhawi in al-I`lan wa al-tawbikh (p. 504). Two extant manuscripts of the Nasiha are kept, one in Cairo at the Dar al-kutub al-misriyya (#B18823) and one in Damascus at the Zahiriyya library (#1347).
Mullah Ali Qari (rah) praised him in his "former" book called:
Here is the proof:
will be seated by His Lord on His throne with Him.
[Aĥmad Ibn Taymiyyah (728 AH) Al-Ĥarraaniyy, Majmuuˆu-l-Fataawaa, 4 / 374.]
This is further to the quotes we have shown earlier regarding Ibn Taymiyyah’s extremely blasphemous anthropomorphism, which includes affirming 6 physical boundaries, divisibility in the mind’s eye due to size, ability to shrink, possibility of being hit by a bucket, having the world physically inside of Him, and more.
who claim to be Muslims."
For example, Aļļaah gave us the judgment in the Qur’aan that those that say that God is three, or Jesus is the son of God, or Jesus is God are blasphemers. This is without regard to what they intend to mean; they commit blasphemy merely by saying that...
"Allah Ta'ala has a limit that no one knows but Him and it is not allowed for anyone to imagine a limit to His limit in himself, however, he is to beleive in the limit and relegate the knolwedge of that to Allah. His place (Makan) also has a limit and He is upon His 'Arsh above the seven heavens- so these are two limits."[Dar' at-Ta'arud]
Also among Ibn Taymiyya's kalâm innovationswas his division of tawhîd into two types:
al-rubûbiyya and tawhîd al-ulûhiyya,
respectively, Oneness of Lordship and Oneness of Godhead.
