The Devil’s Deception

AUTHOR’S BIOGRAPHY

*Abdur-Rahmaan ibn ‘Alee ibn Ja’far al-Jawzee was bom in the city of Baghdad in approximately 1114 CE and grew up studying under the leading scholars of his time, including his uncle, Muhammad ibn Naasir al-Baghdaadee, a scholar of Hadeeth, Fiqh and Arabic grammar.
