About the Program

Fundamentals of Fiqh Series By Dr. Said Alkamali

The Islamic Dawah Center Library is excited to present an opportunity for students of knowledge and Muslims interested in exploring their faith further to meet world renowned scholar Dr. Said Alkamali. Dr. Alkamali is an authority on Maliki Fiqh. His lectures will discuss the fundamentals of Islamic Fiqh (Usool) and the major work of Imam Malik, the incredible compilation Al-Muwatta. Al Muwatta is the first book to fuse together the sciences of Hadith and fiqh, taking forty years to complete.

About the Book

“Muwaṭṭa’” is the first book of Hadith written by Imam Malik ibn Anas, The scholar of Almadina. “tawṭi’a”. One says that the thing is smoothed (waṭṭa’a) and “I prepared the thing for you” and “The bed is laid out” and “The seat is made comfortable for you”. Thus Muwaṭṭa’ means the clear book which smooths the way and is not difficult for the seeker of knowledge to grasp. If you look at the Muwaṭṭa’ in an unbiased way, you will find that it prepares and smooths the way and is easy to grasp, even though it is one of the oldest books now in our possession. No earlier book from the people of knowledge is known. Its author made it an example to be imitated, particularly in the way in which it is arranged.


If the reader looks at the Muwaṭṭa’ with respect to its language, he will find that its language shows that the author was a pure Arab. His language has both force and simplicity. Its terms are neither odd nor hackneyed. His style is free of oversimplification, unnecessary complexity or triteness. Despite its length, the book does not contain any linguistic or grammatical errors nor any of the faults which the scholars of rhetoric warn against. (From the Introduction of the Translation of Almuttah by Aisha Abdurrahman Bewley)
