Summary This book studies the legal reasoning of Ma¿¿lik ibn Anas (d. 179 H./795 C.E.) in the Muwat¿Đt¿Đa¿́¿ and Mudawwana . Although focusing on Ma¿¿lik, the book presents a broad comparative study of legal reasoning in the first three centuries of Islam. It reexamines the role of considered opinion ( ra¿́¿y ), dissent, and legal h¿Đadi¿¿ths and challenges the paradigm that Muslim jurists ultimately concurred on a ¿́¿four-source¿́¿ (Qur¿¿a¿¿n, sunna , consensus, and analogy) theory of law. Instead, Ma¿¿lik and Medina emphasizes that the four Sunni¿¿ schools of law ( madha¿¿hib ) emerged during the formative period as distinctive, consistent, yet largely unspoken legal methodologies and persistently maintained their independence and continuity over the next millennium
