Perhaps Malik’s most famous accomplishment in the annals of Islamic history is, however, his compilation of the Muwattaone of the oldest and most revered Sunni hadith collections and one of “the earliest surviving Muslim law-book[s],”  in which Malik attempted to “give a survey of law and justice ; ritual and practice of religion according to the consensus of Islam in Medina, according to the sunna usual in Medina; and to create a theoretical standard for matters which were not settled from the point of view of consensus and sunna.
According to classical Sunni tradition, the Prophet Muhammad foretold the birth of Malik, saying: Malik was born the son of Anas ibn Malik who is not the Sahabi with the same name and Aaliyah bint Shurayk al-Azdiyya in Medina circa His family was originally from the al-Asbahi tribe of Yemenbut his great grandfather Abu ‘Amir relocated the family to Medina after converting to Islam in the second year of the Hijri calendaror CE.
His grandfather Malik ibn Abi Amir was a student of the second Caliph of Islam Umar and was one of those involved in the collection of the parchments upon which Quranic texts were originally written when those were collected al-kuvra the Caliph Uthman era. Living in Medina gave Malik access to some of the most learned minds of early Islam.
He memorized the Quran in his youth, al-mudawwan recitation from Abu Suhail Nafi’ ibn ‘Abd ar-Rahmanfrom whom he also received al-mudawwaja Ijazahor certification and permission to teach others. Malik’s chain of narrators was considered the most authentic and called Silsilat al-Dhahab or “The Golden Al-mudawwanz of Narrators” by notable hadith scholars including Muhammad al-Bukhari.
Abdul-Ghani Ad-Daqr wrote that Malik was ‘the furthest of all people’ from dialectic theology who was the most knowledgeable of their discussions without accepting their views. Haddad, on the other hand, ql-mudawwana that Malik was not completely averse to the idea of dialectic theology; on the contrary, Haddad points to Malik having studied ‘at the feet of Ibn Hurmuz,’ a master in dialectic theology, for ‘thirteen to sixteen years’.
Regarding Malik’s unique contributions to the field of theology specifically, it is known that he was a strict opponent of anthropomorphism and deemed it absurd to compare the attributes of God which were given in “human imagery” such as that of God’s “hands” or “eyes” with those of man.
Malik was a supporter of the orthodox Sunni doctrine of the beatific vision and he is said to have cited Quran Verily, from their Lord, that day, shall they [the transgressors] be veiled,” as proof of his belief.
When asked about the nature of faithMalik defined it as “speech and works” qawlun wa-‘amalwhich shows that Malik was averse to rigorously separating between faith and works. Malik seems to have been a proponent of intercession in personal supplication. On the basis of several early traditions, it is evident that Malik held the early Sufis and their practices in high al-mudawwan. When he knows the outward science and puts it into practice, God shall open for him the inward science – and that will not take place except by the opening of his heart and its enlightenment.
Only he who combines the two proves true tahaqqaqa. While there are a few traditions relating that Malik, while not an opponent of mysticism as a whole, was nonetheless adverse specifically to the practice of group dhikrsuch traditions have been graded as being munkar or “weak” in their chain of transmission. Malik was a supporter of tabarruk or the “seeking of blessing through [the veneration of] relics.
Malik considered following the sunnah of the Prophet to be of capital importance for every Muslim. It is reported that he said: Whoever boards it is saved, and whoever remains away from it perishes. Accounts of Malik’s life demonstrate that the scholar cherished differences of opinion amongst the ulema as a mercy from God to the Islamic community.
I shall write to the leaders of the armies and to the rulers so that they make it law, and whoever contravenes it shall be put to death,” Malik is said to have responded: Truly, the Prophet was present in this community, he al–kubra to send out troops or set forth in person, and he did not conquer many lands until God took back his soul.
Malik ibn Anas
Then Abu Bakr arose and he also did not conquer many lands. Then Umar arose after the two of them and many lands were conquered at his hands. As a result, he faced the necessity of sending out the Companions of Muhammad as teachers and people did not cease to take from them, notable scholars from notable scholars until our time. If you now go and change them from what they know to what they do not know they shall deem it disbelief kufr.
Rather, confirm the people of each land with regard to whatever knowledge is there, and take this knowledge to yourself. According to another narration, al-Mansur, after hearing Malik’s answers to certain important questions, said: They will leave aside innovations and keep only this knowledge.
For I consider that the source of knowledge is the narrative tradition of Medina and the knowledge of its scholars. For people have already heard different positions, heard hadithand related narrations.
Every group has taken whatever came to them and put it into practice, conforming to it while other people differed. To take them away from what they have been professing will cause a disaster. Therefore, leave people with whatever school they follow and whatever the people of each country chose for themselves.
Malik is famous for declaring: He did not answer me except on five. If the ‘alim bypasses ‘I do not know,’ he will receive a mortal blow. Malik is said to have detested disputing in matters of religion, saying: In the MuwattaMalik writes: The available physical descriptions of Malik relate that he “was tall, heavy-set, imposing of stature, very fair, with white beard Malik died at the age of 85 in Medina in and is buried in the famous Jannat ul-Baqi cemetery across from the Mosque of the Prophet.
Although there was a small shrine constructed around his grave during the medieval period, with many Muslims visiting it to pay their respects, the construction was razed to the ground by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during their campaign of demolishing many of the traditional Islamic heritage sites after the kingdom’s establishment in Malik’s last words were related by one Isma’il ibn Abi Uways who said, “Malik became sick, so I asked some of our people about what he said at the time of his death.
They said, “He recited the testification of faith and then he recited:. Their affair is for God, before and after. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
