Peranan Ibnu Taimiyah di Bidang Politik dan Pendidikan Dalam Mengembangkan Peradaban Islam di Damaskus Tahun 1278-1328 M
Ibn Taimiyah lived at the lowest point of the disintegration of Muslims. During his stay in Damascus, Ibn Taimiyah received the best education from his father who was also a great teacher and famous preacher at the Damascus Mosque. When he grew up the name of Ibn Taymiyyah was often mentioned and respected in the intellectual circles, because the lectures he gave covered all aspects and subjects in Islamic knowledge. Ibn Taimiyah is often referred to as the father of tajdid or reformation, who had a big hand in laying the foundations for Islamic renewal. Ibn Taimiyah thought in the fields of politics and education, he built based on the information contained in the Al-Quran and As-Sunnah. This thought was a response to various problems faced by Islamic society at that time, which demanded problem solving through politics and education.
