Muwatta 
Translators: `A'isha `Abdarahman at-Tarjumana and Ya`qub Johnson
 
Malik's Muwatta ("the well-trodden path") is a collection of two items: 
•
Note for WWW Developers
Malik's Muwatta is divided into 61 books on different subjects, each book containing many 
ahadith. The numbering system used by Malik is 
consecutive per book. 
MSA-USC has placed anchors (hyperlinks) for all the ahadith in the translations presented 
may find it useful to refer to these anchors. For 
example, one could use the anchors to create an 'active' subject index 
into the Muwatta. 
The format of the anchor names for the translated ahadith in Malik's Muwatta is very simple: 
DDD.N.N.N 
where 
D
 stands for a digit, and 
N
 is a number of (several) digits. The first three digits identify 
the book, and the remaining numbers identify 
the report number. The format of the file names 
(one per book) is: 
DDD.mmt.html 
The three digits are the book number, and 
mmt
 stands for Malik's Muwatta Translation. Given 
the anchor, you can tell which file it is found 
in (e.g. 043.43.7.5 is found in 043.mmt.html).

'There are five prayers during the day

anything else besides that?' The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant 
'And fasting the month of Ramadan.' He said, 'Is there anything 
else I have to do?' He said, 'No, except what you
 
do of your own accord.' The

The 
man said, 'Is there anything else that I have to do?' He said, 'No, except what 
you do of your own accord.'

this, nor will I do any less.' The

Book 9, Number 9.25.98: 
Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu'z-Zinad from al-Araj from Abu Hurayra 
may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 
"Shaytan ties three knots at the back of your head when you sleep, 
and he seals the 
place of each knot 
with 'You have a long night ahead, so sleep.' If you wake up and 
remember 
Allah, a knot is untied. If you do wudu, a knot is untied. If you pray, a 
knot is untied, and morning finds you lively 
and in good spirits, and if not, morning 
finds you in bad spirit

mosque. She died, and did not fulfill it, so Abdullah ibn 
Abbas asked her daughter to walk for her. 
Yahya said that he had heard Malik say, "No one walks for anyone else." 
Book 22, Number 22.1.3: 
Yahya related to me from Malik that Abdullah ibn Abi Habiba said, "I said to a 
man, when I was young, 'A man 
who only says that he must walk to the House of 
Allah and does not say that he has vowed to walk, does not have 
to walk.' A man 
said, 'Shall I give 
you this small cucumber?' and he had a small cucumber in his 
hand and you 
will say, 'I must walk to the house of Allah?' I said, 'Yes' and I said it, 
for at that time I was still immature. Then, 
when I came of age, some one said to me 
that I had to fulfill 
my vow. I went and asked Said ibn al-Musayyab 
about it, and he 
said to me, 'You must walk.' So I walked." 
Malik said, "That is the custom among us."

Yahya related to me from Malik that Urwa ibn Udhayna al-Laythi said, "I went out

mawlas to question

children, he gives a sheep for 
both male and female. The aqiqa is not obligatory but 
it is desirable to do it, and people continue to come to us 
about it. If someone makes 
an 
aqiqa for his children, the same rules apply as with all sacrificial animals - 
one-eyed, emaciated, injured, or sick animals must not be used, and neither the meat 
bones are broken and the family eat the meat and give 
some of 
it away as sadaqa. The child is not smeared with 
any of the blood .''

Section: People Killed in Battle or Otherwise whose Situation in 
Inheritance is Not Known 
Book 27, Number 27.13.15: 
Yahya related to me from Malik from Rabia ibn Abi Abd ar-Rahman from more 
than one of the people of 
knowledge of that time, that those who were killed on the 
Day of the Camel, the Day of Siffin, the Day of 
al-Harra, and the Day of Qudayd 
did not inherit fro
m each other. None of them inherited anything from his 
companion unless it was known that he had been killed before his companion. 
Malik said, "That is the way of doing things about which there is no dispute, and 
which none of the people of 
knowledge in our city doubt. The procedure with two 
mutual heirs who are drowned, or killed in another way, 
when it is not known 
which of them died
 first is the same - neither of them inherits anything from his 
companion. 
Their inheritance goes to whoever remains of their heirs. They are 
inherited from by the living." 
Malik said, "No one should inherit from anyone else when there is doubt, and one 
should only inherit from the 
other when there is certainty of knowledge and 
witnesses. That is because a man and his mawla whom his father 
has freed might 
die at the same time.
 The sons of the free man could say, 'Our father inherited from 
the mawla.' 
They should not inherit from the mawla without knowledge or 
testimony that he died first. The living people most 
entitled to his wala' inherit from 
him." 
Malik said, "Another example is two full brothers who die. One of them has 
children and the other does not. They 
have a half-brother by their father. It is not 
known which of them died first, so the inheritance of the childless one 
goes to his 
half-brother 
Book 27, Number 27.14.16: 
Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that Urwa ibn az-Zubayr said 
about the child of lian and the 
child of fornication, that if they died, the mother 
inherited her right from them according to the Book of Allah, the 
Mighty, the 
Majestic! The sib
lings by the mother had their rights. The rest was inherited by the 
former masters of 
the mother if she was a freed slave. If she was a free woman by 
origin, she inherited her due and the siblings by 
the mother inherited their due, and 
the rest went to the 
Muslims. 
Malik said, "I heard the same as that from Sulayman ibn Yasar." 
Malik said, "That is what I saw the people of knowledge in our city doing."

Malik spoke about a man who bought out one of the partners in a shared property, by 
paying the man with an 
animal, a slave, a slave-girl, or the equivalent of that in 
goods. Then another partner decided to exercise his right 
of pre-emption after that,

had 
been. The buyer claimed, "The value of the slave or slave-girl was 100 dinars." 
The partner with the right of 
pre-emption claimed, "The value was 50 dinars." 
Malik said, "The buyer takes an oath that the value of what he payed was 100 dinars.

right of pre-emption wishes, he can compensate him, or else 
he can leave it, unless he can bring a clear proof

possession after that is included." 
Malik said, "Pre-emption is applied to the property of the deceased as it is applied to 
the property of the living. 
If the family of the deceased fear to break up the property 
of the deceased, then they share it and sell it, and they 
have no pre-emption in 
it." 
Malik said, "There is no pre-emption among us in a slave or a slave-girl or a camel, a 
nor in clothes or a well which does not have any 
uncultivated land around it. Pre-emption is in what can be 
usefully divided, and in 
land in wh
ich boundaries occur. As for what cannot be usefully divided, there is no 
pre-emption in it." 
Malik said, "Some one who buys land in which people who are present have a right 
of pre-emption, refers them 
to the Sultan and either they claim their right or the 
Sultan surrenders it to him. If he were to leave them, and not 
refer their situation to 
the S
ultan and they knew about his purchase, and then they left it until a long time 
had 
passed and then came demanding their pre-emption, I do not think that they 
would have it."

blood-money of the injury is greater than the value of 
the umm walad. Her master 
does not have to p
ay more than her value. That is because when the master of a 
slave 
or slave-girl surrenders his slave or slave-girl for an injury which one of them has 
any more than that, even if the blood-money is greater. As the 
master of the umm wa
lad cannot surrender her 
because of the precedent of the sunna, 
when he pays her price, it is as if he had surrendered her. He does not 
have to pay 
more than that. This is the best of what I have heard about the matter. The master is

her criminal action."

Book 58, Number 58.1.1: 
Malik related to me from Yahya ibn Said from Abu'l-Hubab Said ibn Yasar that the 
Messenger of Allah, may 
Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Whoever gives 
sadaqa from good earning - and Allah only accepts 
the good - it is as if he placed it 
in the p
alm of the Merciful to raise it, as one of you raises his foal or young 
camel 
until it is like the mountain " 
Book 58, Number 58.1.2: 
Malik related to me that Ishaq ibn Abdullah ibn Abi Talha heard Anas ibn Malik say, 
"Abu Talha had the 
greatest amount of property in palm-trees among the Ansar in 
Madina. The dearest of his properties to him was 
Bayruha which was in front of the 
mosque. Th
e Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, 
used to 
go into it and drink from the pleasant water which was in it." 
Anas continued, "When this ayat was sent down 'You will not obtain rightness of 
action until you expend of what 
you love,' (Sura 2 ayat l76), Abu Talha went to the 
Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him 
peace, and said, 'Messenger 
of Allah! A
llah, the Blessed, the Exalted, has said, "You will not obtain until you 
expend of what you love." The property which I love the best is Bayruha. It is sadaqa 
good and for it to be stored up with Allah. Place it wherever 
you wish, 
Messengerof Allah. ' " 
"The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'Well 
done! That is property which 
profits! That is property which profits. I have heard 
what you have said about it and I think that you should give 
it to your relatives.' Abu 
Talha sa
id, 'I will do it, Messenger of Allah!' Abu Talha therefore divided it among 
his 
relatives and the children of his paternal uncle."

Book 58, Number 58.3.14: 
Yahya related to me from Malik from Abdullah ibn Abi Bakr from his father that the 
Messenger of Allah, may 
Allah bless him and grant him peace, gave a man from the 
Banu Abd al-Ashal charge over some sadaqa. When 
he came to ask him for some 
camels from the s
adaqa, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant 
him 
peace, was so angry that the anger showed in his face. One way in which anger could 
face was that his eyes became red. Then he said, "This man has 
asked me for what is not
 good for me or him. If 
I refuse it, I hate to refuse. If I give it 
to him, I will give him what is not good for me or him." The man said, 
"Messenger 
of Allah! I will never ask you for any of it!" 
Book 58, Number 58.3.15: 
Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam that his father said, "Abdullah 
ibn al-Arqam said, 'Show 
me a riding-camel which the amir al-muminim can give me 
to use.' I said, 'Yes. One of the sadaqa camels.' 
Abdullah ibn al-Arqam said, 'Would 
you want
 a stout man on a hot day to wash for you what is under his lower 
garment 
and its folds, and then give it to you to drink?' I was angry and said, 'May Allah 
you say such things to me?' Abdullah ibn al-Arqam said, 
'Sadaqa is the impuritie
s of people which they wash off 
themselves.' "
