Ibn Taymiyyah (ra) was he turkish?

Asalamu Alaikum sheikh i have a few questions about shaikhul islaam ibn taymiyya (regarding his seerah)

1.was he turkish?(harran is a city in turkey)
2.is his family turkish/kurdish?
3.what were his views on the madhhabs and sufism?

wa alaylkumus Salaam Wa Rahmatullaah

1. Harran falls in the present Turkey but borders Syria of which it was part. It is known that he was of Arab origin belonging to the nimayr tribe.
He was a ffollwer of the Hanbali math hab and adhered to it. He would always add to his signature al hanbali.
As for tassawuf , ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah was known to accept it but was against certain innovatory acts that some of the mutassawifeen added into it. Therefore his severe attacks againnst their wrong acts.
And ALLAH knows best.

  1. Mashallah beautiful Knowledge you have given. Most of the Salafi and Ahdul hadeeth sect followers say “shaikhul islaam ibn taymiyya ” was salafi and dont follow any madhab.
