Abu'l Faraj Ibn Jauzi
Jamal al-Din AbÃ»’l-Faraj âAbd al-Rahman b. Ali, popularly known as lbn al-JaÃ»zi, 510 A.H.— 599 A.H. (A.D. 1116 – A.D.1200), was the author of a vast number of worksâtheological, historical, biographical, medical, philological, and entertainingâof which several have been printed in recent times. He was famous as a preacher and the traveller lbn Jubair gives an enthusiastic account of two of his sermons heard in BaghdÃ£d. The work of which a translations is here offered is directed against the sins of contemporary society, which it traces to âdelusion by the Devil.â Its title (Talbis Iblis) of which those words are a rendering, had been previously selected by Ghazali for a work of similar scope which he contemplated. Ibn JaÃ»zi, though he handles Ghazali severely, adopted it by far the greater part of the book is criticism or censure of the SÃ»fis, who, owing to the establishment of Orders by lbn al-Rifa’i and ‘Abd al-Qadir Ã¢I-Gilani in the sixth century of Islam, were beginning to render them, especially in North Africa, a political factor.
