    Maybe next time you can say what he (ibn al-Qayyim) exactly believed or said about the subjects mentioned. I thought he allowed intercesion through prophets names, by seeking their shafa’a? And it looks like this text confirms this and that he was beaten.

    Not everyone who is following this blessed blog of yours knows every detail.

      He was beaten and paraded like that for rejecting interceding through the Prophets and for saying that people should have the intention to visit the Prophet’s Mosque and not his grave ﷺ when they set out to go to Medinah. You can read Shaikh al-Albaani’s book on tawassul here.
