Ash-Shāfi'ī said, "After the Book of Allah, there is no book on the face of the earth sounder than the book of Mālik." 'Alā' ad-Dīn Maghlaṭāy al-Ḥanafī said, "The first person to compile the ṣaḥīḥ was Mālik." Ibn Ḥajar said, "The book of Mālik is sound by all the criteria that are demanded as proofs in the mursal, munqaṭi' and other types of transmission." As-Suyūṭī followed Ibn Ḥajar's judgement and said, "It is absolutely correct to say that the Muwaṭṭa' is sound (ṣaḥīḥ) without exception." Al-Bukhārī and Muslim transmitted most of its ḥadīths and included them in their Ṣaḥīḥ collections. The authors of the rest of the six books, the Imām of the ḥadīth scholars, Aḥmad ibn Ḥanbal, and others did the same. But, in addition, the Muwaṭṭa' contains a record of the practice of the people of Madīnah of the first generations, a transmission of the ethos that permeated the city and Imām Mālik's painstaking clarification of the Sunna, the ḥadīths, the practice and legal judgements. Imam Mālik's full name is Mālik ibn Anas ibn Mālik ibn Abī 'Āmir al-Aṣbaḥī and he was related to Dhū Aṣbaḥ, a sub-tribe of Ḥimyar. He was instructed in the learning and recitation of the Noble Qur'ān by Imām Nāfi' ibn 'Abd ar-Raḥmān ibn Abī Nu'aym, the Imām of the reciters of Madīna and one of the "seven reciters". Among the huge number of his teachers in ḥadīth and fiqh were Nāfi', the mawlā of 'Abdullāh ibn 'Umar and Ibn Shihāb az-Zuhrī. He sat to give fatwā when he was seventeen years old after seventy Imāms had testified that he was worthy to give fatwā and teach. His own students included Imām ash-Shāfi'ī and Imām Muhammad ibn al-Ḥasan ash-Shaybānī the Ḥanafī mujtahid, as well as a great number of Imāms of ḥadīth and fiqh and thus he is known as Imām al-A'immah 'the Imām of the Imāms'.

  1. As-salamu ‘alaykum akhi,

    Frankly speaking this translation is online for years now. It would have been much better if you could have uploaded scanned version of it or and ebook which are a copy of print versions (like few DKI books that you’ve uploaded). As its much more helpful and give the feeling of a real book as well as it helps people to cite it with page numbers et cetera.

    Scanned books or electronic books that are a replica of the print versions are more beneficial.

    As-salamu ‘alaykum.

    • wa alaykkum salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathuhu akhi,

      Now a days we are focusing on ebooks so the ones who read on tablets/phones may benefit from it. In sha Allah if possible we share scanned copies in future.
