The Muwatta of Imam Muhammad

Imam Malik composed the Muwatta over a period of forty years to represent the well-trodden path of the people of Madina. Its name also means that it is the book that is many times agreed upon about whose contents the people of Madinah were unanimously agreed and that is made easy and facilitated. Its high standing is such that people of every school of fiqh and all of the imams of hadith scholarship agree upon its authenticity. Imam Shafi i said, There is not on the face of the earth & after the Book of Allah a book & which is more sahih than the book of Malik. Shah Wali Allah Dihlawi (1114-1176 AH) said, My breast expanded and I became certain that the Muwatta is the most sahih book to be found on the earth after the Book of Allah.

About The Author

Imam Malik ibn Anas ibn Malik ibn Abi Amir al-Asbahi al-Madani

Imam Malik is the imam of the imams, the leader of the people of knowledge of Madinah, Malik ibn Anas ibn Malik ibn Abi Amir al-Asbahi al-Madani, born in 94 AH, 95 AH or even 99 AH. He was called the Man of Knowledge of Madinah. People of knowledge understood that it was him the Prophet saw indicated in the hadith from Abu Hurayra, People will soon beat the livers of their camels [in travelling in search of knowledge] but they will not find a man of knowledge more knowledgeable than the man of knowledge of Madinah. Among his pupils were the Imams Sufyan ath-Thawri, Sa id ibn Mansur, Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak, Abd ar-Rahman al-Awza i who was older than him, Layth ibn Sa d who was one of his peers, Imam ash-Shafi i, Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Shaybani, the Malikis Abd ar-Rahman ibn al-Qasim, Yahya ibn Yahya al-Laythi, Ibn Wahb, and Dhu n-Nun al-Misri. He died in 179 AH on the morning of the 14th of Rabi al-Awwal.

Imam Muhammad al-Shaybani

He is Abu Abdullah Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn Farqad al-Shaybani. Muhammad was born in Wasit in 132 AH, and grew up in Kufa. He was a pupil of Abu Hanifah. Imam Shafii said I have not seen anyone more eloquent than him. I used to think when I saw him reciting the Qur'an that it was as if the Qur'an had been revealed in his language. He also said I have not seen anyone more intelligent than Muhammad ibn al-Hasan. Adh-Dhahabi said, He narrated from Malik ibn Anas and others, and he was one of the great oceans of knowledge and fiqh, and he was strong [when he narrated] from Malik. Muhammad said, I stood at Malik s door for three years and I heard [the Muwatta ] from him [with] more than seven hundred hadith. He died in Ray in 189 AH.

Customer Reviews

An extremely important work. Arguably the most important introductory work on hadith and comparative fiqh. Many of the key proofs from the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) along with the key fatawa of the Companions and Followers are presented in a readable fashion, non-encyclopedic fashion. Imam Muhammad stands at a very unique viewpoint in this “Tale of Two Cities” that is only surpassed by his student and interlocutor, Imam al-Shafi’i.
