The Muwatta of Imam Muhammad


“The unqualified truth is that all of the Muwatta is sahih without any exception!” Hafiz Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani

The version of the Muwatta narrated by Imam Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Shaybani, one of the two leading pupils of Imam Abu Hanifah, directly from his three years of study with Imam Malik will be of particular interest not only to students of Hanafi fiqh but also to students of hadith in general.

He is Abu Abdullah Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn Farqad al-Shaybani. Muhammad was born in Wasit in 132 AH, and grew up in Kufa. He was a pupil of Abu Hanifah. Imam Shafi I said, I have not seen anyone more eloquent than him. I used to think when I saw him reciting the Qur’an that it was as if the Qur’an had been revealed in his language. He also said I have not seen anyone more intelligent than Muhammad ibn al-Hasan. Adh-Dhahabi said, He narrated from Malik ibn Anas and others, and he was one of the great oceans of knowledge and fiqh, and he was strong [when he narrated] from Malik. Muhammad said, I stood at Malik s door for three years and I heard [the Muwatta ] from him [with] more than seven hundred hadith. He died in Ray in 189 AH.
