- "Biography of every Narrator of the Muwatta"
A whole section is dedicated to Rijal narrators of the Muwatta of Imam Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ash-Shaybani by Shaykh 'Abd al-Hayy al-Luknawi.
This book is the Shaykh's distillation of the strengths and weaknesses of all of the narrators of the Muwatta, both the Madinan narrators of Imam Malik and the Kufan and other narrators of Imam Muhammad.
"The Muwatta of Muhammad" By Imam Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ash-Shaybani being the transmission of the Muwatta of Imam Malik. This narration of the Muwatta of Imam Malik differs from most of the other transmissions in a number of respects: that it is not from a Maliki but from one of the two main imams of the Hanafi madhhab.
Although Imam Muhammad does not include Imam Malik's accounts of the 'amal of Madinah, and Malik's own judgements and explanations of different points of fiqh from the Madinan point of view, in their place he substitutes his own judgements and the judgements of Abu Hanifah, may Allah show him mercy, but nevertheless sometimes opting for the position of Malik where it is based on a stronger hadith. In this respect, although the book is not the final word on Hanafi fiqh it is a fascinating glimpse of the crystallisation of the Hanafi madhhab in a very early stage.
Most interestingly, it contains an amount of ahadith from Malik himself that the Muwatta narrated by Yahya ibn Yahya does not contain, most notably the hadith "Actions are only by intentions".
This Book Is of particular interest not only to students of Hanafi fiqh, but also to students of hadith in general.
