ABSTRACT
The article discusses the three fatwas, the doctrinal positions of Islamic scholar and theologian Ibn Taymiyya on astrology. The form and content of the fatwa are dependent on the nature and detail of the questions submitted to the mufti. It states that the first fatwa indulges in messages about eclipses and the phenomenon of forgeries while the second is structured to the different aspects of the question it answers and the third is a short and direct answer to the raised question. It also mentions that the fatwas are informed by religious disciplines of Islam.
