The claims that ‘Ali fought against the Jinn are baseless lies

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it true that Imaam ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) fought against the jinn? This is narrated in the book Ghazawaat al-Imaam ‘Ali, which says that he fought them until he sent them down to the seventh earth. What is your opinion of this book?

Praise be to Allaah.

All of this is baseless. He did not fight the jinn and no such thing happened at all. Rather this is false and is one of the lies and fabrications that people have invented.  Abu’l-‘Abbaas Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) stated this clearly and said: “It is a lie which has no foundation. It is one of the false stories fabricated by the liars.”  

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
