Ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani
Malik said “There is only one truth. Two contradictory statements cannot both be correct” and “Knowledge is a light which Allah places wherever He wills. It is not much narration of Ahadith”. These apparently obvious but sill powerful statements set the tone for this book which gathers together in one volume matters which often challenge the cosy but fallacious consensus that modern Muslims imagine to be so safely established. The beginning is an extensive treatment of ‘aqidah according to the People of Madinah, an examination of the contentious subject of bid’ah – innovation in the deen. One of the following chapters is an exposition of the relative merits of Ahadith and ‘amal- the practice of the People of Madinah – an argument which is rarely heard today. A great deal of the book is on the noble qualities of character as exemplified by men and women who held to them under extreme pressure, in both wealth and poverty.
