Did Alee (رضى الله عنه) Battle the Jinn? – Shaykh bin Baz, rahimahullah
Q: Is it correct that Imam ‘Alee, may Allah be pleased with him, battled the jinn as it is mentioned in the book “Conquests of Imaam Alee”, and that he battled them until he sent them to the seventh earth? And what is your opinion concerning this book?
A: All of this has no basis. He did not fight them, and nothing that was mentioned before took place. Rather, it is falsehood and among the fabrications and lies that the people have invented.
Abu ‘Abbaas, Shaykh-ul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him, determined that and said: “Indeed it is a lie that has no basis, and it is among the trifles which the liars fabricate.”
From the Fatawa Collection of Shaykh bin Baz, rahimahullah ta’ala
