al-Muwatta (Imam Malik ibn Anas)

The Well-trodden-approved path

The earliest extant composition of Islamic Law, the Muwatta holds a distinctive place in early Islamic literary works, as it is not only a compilation of authentic Hadith, but also a compendium of Islamic jurisprudence that continues to serve as the basic primer in the Maliki School of Thought.

The Muwatta, is a collection of over 1900 Prophetic sayings (ahadith) as well as the legal standpoints of his companions (Sahabah), their students (Tabi'een) and practices of the Madinan People. It was compiled and revised by Imam Malik for over 40 years and has received wide acclaim from most of the greatest scholars of Islam. The great Faqih Imam Shafi' held it to be 'The most authentic book on the face of the earth after the Quran' and the great Muhaddith Imam Bukhari stated that “The most authentic chain in Hadith Sciences is Malik, from Nafi' from Abdullah Ibn Umar. Known to all scholars of Hadith as the Golden Chain.

It continues to be taught fervidly throughout the Muslim world, and Cordoba Academy is honoured to bring its wisdom to students worldwide through our weekly Ijazah program.
