How Ibn Taymiyyah justifies attack on Hazrat Fatima Zahra’s (s.a.) house?

Muslims in general are in denial on the attack on Hazrat Fatima Zahra’s (s.a.) house post-martyrdom of Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.).

They need only refer to the views of Ibn Taymiyyah – the founder of modern day of Salafism – on the subject.

Ibn Taymiyyah not only confirms the attack but defends the actions of the rulers by advancing a rather ‘imaginative’ rational for the attack.

He claims:

He (second one) barged into the house (of Fatima (s.a.)) to see if there was something from Allah’s money to distribute it or give it to those who deserved it!
