The study of Ibn Taymiyyah's life and knowledge has attracted the attention of researchers. Yet, the role of this scholar in the klanbali school of law has not been adequately researched and examined. Accordingly, this thesis seeks to study in depth some aspects of this role. The thesis is divided into seven chapters. The first chapter is divided into two sections: the first section studies and discusses several points related to Ibn klanbal after whom the klanbali school was named and especially the question of whether he can be considered as a jurist or just a traditionist (muhaddith). The second section is devoted to the study of certain aspects of Ibn Taymiyyah, focusing on the most important of his works in the field of jurisprudence and its general principles. The second chapter is a comparison between the basic sources of law of both Abmad and Ibn Taymiyyah, a conclusion of which helps in deciding the rank of the latter's status in knowledge. The third and fourth chapters deal with Ibn Taymiyyah's role in clarifying and correcting certain issues in the principles of the tianbali school of Law, and ljanbali jurisprudence respectively. The role of this scholar in influencing Hanbali jurists is the subject of the fifth chapter, where a detailed study and analysis of books of tabaqat and tarajum, as well as treatises compiled by the scholars under study is carried out. The sixth chapter discusses and studies Ibn Taymiyyah's position towards the triple divorce as a case study of the problematical fatawa of Ibn Taymiyyah which have been confronted with great opposition by Hanbali scholars and surprisingly has left an influence on the school's position regarding this legal issue. Although the subject of this thesis is a study of the role of a scholar who lived in the seventh-eighth/thirteenth-fourteenth centuries on the I-Janbali school of law, this is, however, a subject of interest to today's scholars and the Muslim public, this being due to the fact that Ibn Taymiyyah is one of the scholars who has greatly influenced the klanbali school of law which is an existing school of law in various parts of the Islamic world. In addition, the various corrections and clarifications made by Ibn Taymiyyah to the Hanbali school of law in both its jurisprudence and general principles, may be applied to other schools of law, within which similar problems can be found.
