Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya On Knowledge


The renowned theologian and jurist Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (d.1350) wrote numerous titles, many of which are still popular today. Amongst these is Key to the Blissful Abode. The present work is an abridgment of the first volume of Key to the Blissful Abode. In it, Ibn Qayyim focuses on the importance of knowledge and willpower, as a means through which a person may attain Paradise. Willpower is the door and knowledge––in particular, knowledge which pertains to God and His Attributes, the Qur’an and the example of the Prophet––is the key. Ibn Qayyim discusses the virtues and benefits of knowledge over wealth and worldly matters.
