Imam Abu Dawud

  • Deeds are to be judged only by intentions.
  • Part of a man’s good observance of Islam is that he leaves alone that which does not concern him.
  • None of you can be a believer unless you love for your brother that which you love for yourself.
  • The permitted (halal) is clear, and the forbidden (haram) is clear, between these two are doubtful matters. Whosoever abstains from these doubtful matters has saved his religion.

The traditions compiled in Sunan Abu Dawud were generally followed by companions, successors and their followers. It is a basic source of knowledge about the legal points of views held by Imam Malik, Sufyan Al-Thawri and Al-Awza’i. It serves as an arbiter for disagreement among jurists.

Imam Abu Dawud died on Friday 16th Shawwal 275 A.H. at the age of 72.
