Public Debates on Right and Wrong Sample Clauses

Public Debates on Right and Wrong. The immediate confiict between Ibn Maymūn and Ibn Qāaī ³Ajlūn erupted aker the former’s return from the O1oman Empire in 911/1505 and the la1er’s resigna- tion from active involvement in the fight against the alcohol trade. The hierarchi- cal relations between the two figures had changed in the meantime, since Ibn Maymūn had achieved his own position as a Sufi shaykh and scholar of standing. The opposition between the two figures should be understood within the frame- work of a wider opposition between Taqī al-Dīn and Malikites, in particular of Maghribī origin, which is made explicit in the contemporary accounts through- out. In the face of Ibn Maymūn’s extensive ties within this community, it makes sense to include in this account also debates that led up to their confrontation, but occurred before Ibn Maymūn’s return to Damascus. These debates concerned more di@cult issues than the alcohol trade and were no “open-and-shut cases” but referred tofine points (daqā’iq) [that] are a ma1er of judgment (ijtihād).” 115 While these could relate to the practice of common be- lievers, decisions over them were restricted to the jurists and higher authorities of the Mamluk hierarchy. 116 Among the best-known debates were those kicked off 114 Al-Ghazzī, Kawākib, 2:246. 115 Cook, Commanding right, 433. 116 For instance, when Taqī al-Dīn Ibn Qāaī ³Ajlūn proposed a compromise aker believers had approached him over the question of the correctness of a Friday prayer, they were dissatisfied with his ruling and instead turned to the malik al-umarā’. Other debates were eventually brought before the sultan, such as Taqī al-Dīn’s opposition against the Sufi Mufiammad al-³Umarī, who 78 TORSTEN WOLLINA, ALsAMR BIsALsMA‘RŪF AND THE SUFI/SCHOLAR DICHOTOMY by Burhān al-Dīn Ibrāhīm al-Biqā³ī (d. 885/1480) over the monistic philosophy of al-Ghazzālī and Ibn al-³Arabī or over the correct prayer call. 117 Taqī al-Dīn vehe- mently opposed him in all, even though he had originally received al-Biqā³ī well, when he arrived in Damascus. 118 Wensinck’s definition of Ash³arism fits well to describe Taqī al-Dīn’s position and the reasons behind it: “the masses who are oc- cupied with handiwork and craks must be lek alone with their sound dogmas …. To teach them the kalām would be u1erly harmful. For oken it arouses doubts in them and shakes their faith beyond recovery.” 119 While Taqī al-Dīn did not reject Ibn al-³Arabī’s popular teachings in general, he was anxious about lay people who took...
