Ibn Taymiyya is often hailed as a vanguard of Islamic traditionalism. He argues that anyone who receives the divine message and turns away from it will be held accountable on Judgment Day. Nevertheless, even the wicked will one day be spared of chastisement and even redeemed. This chapter examines Ibn Taymiyya’s arguments for universalism, a refutation by Taqi al-Din al-Subki (d. 1355), and a re-articulation of Ibn Taymiyya’s arguments by his student Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (d. 1350). This chapter also looks at a somewhat similar modern debate between Muhammad ‘Ali (d. 1951) of Lahore and the Western academic James Robson (d. 1981).Ibn Taymiyya (or: Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Taymiyah, Ibn Taymiya, Ibn Taimiyyah, Ibn Taimiyya, Ibn Taimiyah).
