Ibn Qayyam Jauzi writes about Ibn Taimiyya

ثُمَّ أَخْبَرَ النَّاسَ وَالْأُمَرَاءَ سَنَةَ اثْنَتَيْنِ وَسَبْعِمِائَةٍ لَمَّا تَحَرَّكَ التَّتَارُ وَقَصَدُوا الشَّامَ: أَنَّ الدَّائِرَةَ وَالْهَزِيمَةَ عَلَيْهِمْ. وَأَنَّ الظَّفَرَ وَالنَّصْرَ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ. وَأَقْسَمَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ سَبْعِينَ يَمِينًا. فَيُقَالُ لَهُ: قُلْ إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ. فَيَقُولُ: إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ تَحْقِيقًا لَا تَعْلِيقًا. وَسَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ ذَلِكَ. قَالَ: فَلَمَّا أَكْثَرُوا عَلَيَّ. قُلْتُ: لَا تُكْثِرُوا. كَتَبَ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى فِي اللَّوْحِ الْمَحْفُوظِ. أَنَّهُمْ مَهْزُومُونَ فِي هَذِهِ الْكَرَّةِ. وَأَنَّ النَّصْرَ لِجُيُوشِ الْإِسْلَامِ. قَالَ: وَأَطْمَعَتْ بَعْضَ الْأُمَرَاءِ وَالْعَسْكَرِ حَلَاوَةُ النَّصْرِ قَبْلَ خُرُوجِهِمْ إِلَى لِقَاءِ الْعَدُوِّ.

Then he (meaning by ibn taimiyya) told the people and the commanders in year 702 that Tatars have aimed to march towards Shaam: that they will be defeated and the victory will be for the Muslims.

He gave more than seventy oaths on that.

They asked him: ‘Say inshallah.’

He replied: ‘Inshallah with surety {sheikh stresses this point in video}, no comments.’

I heard him saying that when they insisted, he replied:

‘Do not insist, verily Allah wrote it in the Guarded Tablet (Luh-e-Mahfuz) that they shall be defeated in this battle and the victory will be for Muslims’.

He said: that some of the leaders had tasted the sweetness of victory even before they had met their enemies
