ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani on ibn Taymiyya’s Diminishing of ‘Ali (radhiallahu ‘anh)

Shaykh al-Islam ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani (D. 852) has recorded in Lisan al-Mizan (6/319, Hyderabad edn.):

وكم من مبالغة لتوهين كلام الرافضي ادته أحيانا إلى تنقيص علي رضى الله عنه

“How much did he (Ibn Taymiyya) exaggerate in order to weaken the words of the Rafidi (al-Hilli), which at times led him to diminish Ali (radiallahu ‘anh).”
