Studying Under Imaam Maalik (rahimahullah) – Part One

Rabee’ bin Sulaimaan (rahimahullah) narrates that he heard Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) mention the following:

I departed from Makkah Mukarramah and joined the tribe of Huzail, travelling with them in the desert. I learned their manner of speaking and the Arabic that they spoke, as they were among the most eloquent of Arabs. I stayed with them for some time, walking with them whenever they departed, and halting with them whenever they stopped.

Thereafter, I returned to Makkah Mukarramah and began to engage in reciting poetry and recounting the history of different people and tribes. One day, a certain man from the tribe of Zuhra passed by and said to me, “O Abu ‘Abdillah! It pains me to see that you are not engaged in acquiring the knowledge of Deen and Fiqh (the understanding of Deen). That which you are currently engaged in is merely the art of eloquence and speaking fluently.” I immediately asked the man, “Who still remains from the ‘Ulamaa who are frequented for their knowledge of Deen?” The man replied, “Imaam Maalik bin Anas (rahimahullah), the leader of the Muslims.”
