Maliks Muwatta - Special Attributes

Caliph Harun Rashid requested that Imam Maliks book(s), the Muwatta, should be displayed in the Kaaba, and that all uslims be imposed to follow Imam Malik within all jurisprudential matters. He refused saying: "Refrain from this as the ompanions of the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam themselves held opposing views within subsidiary masaail. The ommon folk already follow these differing views. All are upon the righteous path."
