Ibn Taymiyyah had writings loaded with anthropomorphic beliefs and other kufr. Any Sunni aalim in the past who praised him never praised his Aqeedah. Rather they praised his zuhd and his knowledge of hadith. He is not considered a reliable authority in his own madhab (by the Hanbalis). Some ulama even made takfir of him, though there is some evidence that he repented. Alahazrat's view is the view of the majority of ulama. That we do not make takfir of Ibn Taymiyyah but we don't honor him nor do we quote his deviant ideas.
