One of the brightest stars among Muslim scholars and the most gifted disciple of Shaikh-ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, Shams Al-din Muhammad Ibn Abi Bakr, Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyya was born in 1292 C.E. in a village near Damascus.   Information about his early childhood and education is scant except that he studied the basics of fiqh, hadith and other Islamic subjects from his father, who was the qayyim of Madrasa Al-Jawzziyah in Damascus.
