How they lived: IMAM Malik sayings
From the lives of our pious predecessors:
IMAM Malik said, “I am but a man. I make mistakes sometimes and I am correct sometimes, so examine my opinions and accept anything that agrees with the Book and Sunnah; and leave anything that does not agree with the Book and Sunnah.”
– Ibn ‘Abd Al-Barr, Jami’ Bayan Al-‘Ilm wa Fadlihi, vol. 2 pg. 465.
