Ibn Sina (Avicenna): A Root from the Evil Roots

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

His name was Al-Husayn bn Abdillaah Aboo Alee Ibn Sina. He was born 980AH (circa 1038CE). He was a philosopher and physician. His work Al-Qaanoon remains a reference book in the modern day medicine. He was one of the arrowheads of passage of the Greek Philosophy into the milieu of the Muslims. He was specially influenced by the works of Aristotle before becoming an ardent disciple of Plato. Both Aristotle and Plato, and their teacher, Socrates, were the mastermind of the Greek Philosophy – the philosophy that has given birth to virtually all the contemporary human thoughts from system of governance to finance.

A time had gone in the history of Islam when the ethos of the religion were nearly supplanted with the thoughts of Aristotle et al. In this ‘modern time,’ there is a resurgence to get the Greek ideas into the thinking of the Muslims, covertly and overtly. The educational system of the world today – including many of the Muslim countries, save a few, is built on these satanic thoughts but ‘many people do not know.’ While many Muslims have fallen for the bait – by relishing the system without giving it any thought, some other Muslims have tried to completely reject it, even some aspects that may be useful and categorized as human discoveries. Both enclaves are in the extreme. Thus while some Muslim academics brazenly sell the Aristotelian thoughts to the Muslims, some Muslims have said learning anything that comes from the West is haram!

Not to derail, Ibn Sina was among the roots that destroyed the moral and religious consciousness of the Muslims in the Tenth-Eleventh Century in the history of the Deen. He, among the others such as Ibn At-Toosee, Al-Faraabee, Al-Hallaaj, Ibn Arabee, etc., almost made the Qur’aan and Sunnah mere texts of literature of no moral and religious values. In his book, Al-Ishaaraat, Ibn Sina vigorously defended the positions of Aristotle on eternity of the world and unreliability of an after-life. Ibn Sina went as far denying the Knowledge of the Creator, His Power and Ability, resurrection of the dead from the grave. On those denials, Al-Imâm Al-Ghazaalee in Tahaafut, after refuting him, declared him an unbeliever.

Ibn Katheer said: ‘It was said that he repented before his death. Allaah knows best.’
