.:Fatwā and Taqwā:.

Said Muĥammad ibn Muqātil al-Rāzī, may Allāh have mercy upon him:

“Even if I were given the world in its entirety I would not drink alcoholic drinks, meaning nabīdh of dates and raisins [i.e. other than khamr],
and if I were given the world in its entirety I would not give the verdict that it is impermissible [ĥarām].”

[Khulāşah al-Fatāwā]

The reason being that at his time the fatwā was given according to the opinion of Imām al-Aáżam, that alcoholic drinks other than khamr [i.e. wine]
with the condition that one does not become are permissible, intoxicated nor do so for merry-making as the sinners do.

However, for centuries the fatwā has been given according to the fatwā of Imām Muĥammad ibn al-Ĥasan al-Shaybānī, that all alcoholic drinks are prohibited.

.:Authenticity of Fiqh al-Akbar:.

Abu’l Muntahā Shihābuddīn Aĥmad ibn Muĥammad al-Maghnīsāwī [d. 1000 AH / 1592 CE] writes in his commentary:

“Says the weak, sinful slave Abu’l Muntahā, may Allāh, the Most Great and the Most Generous, protect him from errors, sins,
and corrupt, futile beliefs that the book Fiqh al-Akbar, which was authored by Imām al-Aáżam, is an authentic and accepted book.”
Mullā Álī ibn Sulţān al-Qārī al-Ĥanafī [d. 1014 AH / 1605 CE] writes in his commentary of Fiqh al-Akbar, Minaĥ al-Rawđ al-Az’har:

“Said Imām al-Aáżam, the Magnanimous, Most Eminent, in his book named Fiqh al-Akbar...”

.:Ibn Taymiyyah affirms RasūlAllāh ﷺ helps:.

Before I am accused of misquoting Ibn Taymiyyah, as certain individuals have a habit of doing so, I make it clear that Ibn Taymiyyah did not approve of this and condemned it harshly.
However, I will present those passages in which he affirms the reality of it, thus none may accuse me of deception for leaving out the parts of condemnation.

He states that though it is a reality, this does not make it permissible, whereas Najdīs deny the reality completely.
He writes:

“I know of a group from those who asked their needs from those in the graves, from the Prophets and the righteous, and their needs were fulfilled.”

.:Origination of the world:.

“When it has been established* that the world is originated, and it is known that anything originated must have an originator, for by necessity it is impossible that there be a preponderance in favour of one of the two alternatives of something Image
possible [i.e. of it existing and of it not existing] without there being a determiner, it is established that the world has an originator.”

— Imām Sáduddīn Masúūd al-Taftāzānī al-Ĥanafī [d. 791 AH / 1389 CE] in Sharĥ al-Áqā’id
* That is, when it has been established by evidence that the world is originated, preceded by non-existence, and it is known that its existence is not due to its own self, and its existence and non-existence is equal in the intellect,

.:Raising the hands only at commencement:.

Said Ábdullāh ibn Masúūd:

“Shall I not pray for you the prayer of RasūlAllāh ﷺ?”

Thus, he prayed and did not raise his hands except for the first time.

Abū Ýīsā [al-Tirmidhī] said:

“The ĥadīth of Ibn Masúūd is a ĥasan ĥadīth. Image
More than one amongst the people of knowledge from the companions of Nabī ﷺ and the tābiýīn held this opinion, and it is the opinion of Sufyān al-Thawrī and the people of Kūfah.”

[Tirmidhī, #257]

Albānī grades this narration şaĥīĥ. Image
He also graded the same ĥadith şaĥīĥ in Mishkāt al-Maşābīĥ:

“The reality is that it is a şaĥīĥ ĥadith, and its isnād is şaĥīĥ upon the criteria of Muslim.”

.:The ambassador of Tripoli:.

In March 1786, Thomas Jefferson and and John Adams visited London in order to negotiate with Tripoli's ambassador, Sīdī Hajjī Ábd al-Rahmān.
Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to John Jay, dated March 28th 1786, regarding this meeting, in which he wrote:

“We took the liberty to make some inquiries concerning the Grounds of their pretentions to make war upon Nations who had done them no Injury,
and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation.

The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran,

You forgot to mention that Sharh al-Sudūr was authored by Imām Suyūtī.

I suppose, according to you, he too was a follower of, "distortion, lies and folklore religion".
The first quote can be found on page 141:

In the Tārīkh of Ibn Najjār with his chain, from Abu'l Qāsim ibn Hibatullāh ibn Salām, the Mufassir [exegete], he said:

“We had a Shaykh whom we would recite to. One of his companions passed away, and the Shaykh saw him in his dream.
He asked him, ‘What did Allāh do with you?’

He replied, ‘He forgave me’

He asked, ‘How was your state with Munkar and Nakīr?’

He said, ‘O Ustād, when they made me sit and asked me, Who is your Lord and who is your Nabī?’

Allāh gave me ilhām [inspiration], that I say to them,
