A Summary of Shaykh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah's The Obligation of Opposing the People of the Hell-Fire
Summarized by al-Allamah Muhammad Ibn Ali Ibn Muhammad al-Bali al-Hanbali (d.778H)
With notes from the three eminent scholars: Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ibn Baz (RA) Shaykh Muhammad Salih Al-Uthaymin (RA) and Shaykh Salih Al-Fawzaan.
"The celebrations and holidays of the disbelievers are countless and various, and it is not upon the Muslim to seek them out or to know them; it suffices [the Muslim] to know that any of their actions, days [of celebration] , or places [of observance], that the reason behind that action and glorification of that place or time originated from them. Even one does not know whether or not it has originated from them, it suffices the Muslim knowing that it has no basis in the Religion of Islam, and the very least that could be said of it, is that it is from the innovated matters." - Iqtida al-Sirat al-Mustaqim.
Before the the reader is Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah's classical work on opposing the disbelievers in their ways and practices in general, and in their holidays in specific. Although written over seven hundred years ago, it is still an essential discourse for the Muslim who desire to have the correct understanding as it relates to the non-Islamic holidays, resembling the non-Muslims, and adhering to the correct Islamic 'aqidah in general.
Shaykh Salih Al-Fawzaan said: "The intent behind this book is to lay down principles and guidelines which the believer can adhere to throughout his [or her] life, so that they can be upon the Sirat al-Mustaqim (i.e the straight path), and be distant from the path of those who earned the anger of Allah and those who went astray."
