Product Description

Al-Muwatta
of Imam Malik Ibn Anas
The First Formulation of Islamic Law
Revised in whole
Translated by Aisha Abdurrahman Bewley
Paperback 465 Pages
Published by Madinah Press Inverness

 

 

The first formulation of Islamic Law based on the behaviour of the people of Madinah during the time of the great Companions, Al-Muwatta is the blueprint for a just and radiant society: the earliest, clearest, cleanest record of early Islam. It is divided into 61 books on different subjects, each book containing many ahadith. The numbering system used by Malik is consecutive per book

Malik's Muwatta (the well-trodden path) is a collection of two items:

  1. the sayings and deeds of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) (also known as the sunnah). The reports of the Prophet's sayings and deeds are called ahadith.
  2. the legal opinions and decisions of the Prophet's Companions, their successors, and some later authorities.

Imam Malik (full name Malik bin Anas bin Malik bin Abu Amir Al-Asbahi) was born in 93 A.H. and died in 179 A.H. He lived most of his life in Madinah, the city in which the Prophet (pbuh) settled in. He was a preeminent scholar of Islam, and is the originator of the Maliki judicial school of thought. He is reputed to have had over one thousand students. During Malik's lifetime, he steadily revised his Muwatta, so it reflects over forty years of his learning and knowledge. It contains a few thousand hadith.
