Imam Malik Did Not Like to Debate

Imam ash-Shafi’i رحمه الله said:

“When some of the people of desires {fitna makers} came to Imam Malik ibn Anas رحمه الله he said:

” As for me, then I am upon clear evidence from my Lord and my Deen. And as for you, then you are in doubt, so go to a doubter and argue with him. ”
