Question: “You mentioned in your editing of the book al-Āyāt al-Bayyināt by al-Alūsī regarding the book ‘al-Rūḥ’ [The Soul] that there is doubt over its attribution to Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah?”
Response: “Yes, I have doubts regarding ascribing the book to Ibn al-Qayyim due to the numerous stories and rejected material it contains in addition to the fact that I did not come across a manuscript copy which can be relied upon to definitively ascribe the book to him.” P. 170
