Imam Malik’s (r.a.) Mastery of Tafsir & Fiqh

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In fiqh, the Imam Malik (r.a.) surpassed his contemporaries in Madina.  Shaykh Wahb ibn Rashid (r.a.) said, “I have never seen someone with the knowledge of deducing from the Qur’an as Malik, along with his great recognition of strong and weak narrations.”

Shaykh ‘Abdullah ibn Luhay’ah (r.a.) said, “I asked an-Nadhr ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar who has a saying after Rabi’ah in Madina?  He replied, ‘al-Ghulam al-Aswbahi.’”  “al-Ghulam al-Aswbahi” is another nickname of Imam Malik (r.a.)

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (r.a.) said, “I compared Imam Malik to Awza’iy, ats-Tsawri, Layts, Hammad, and al-Hakam in knowledge, and he is the leader in hadits and fiqh.”
