Imam Malik on Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq

The great and most famous scholar from the city of Madinah was Imam Malik ibn Anas:

He took knowledge from Imam Jafar al-Sadiq and said:

‘Most certainly, Imam Jafar al-Sadiq was among the pious [Ascetic] scholars who truly fear Allah.’

و قد أخذ عن الإمام جعفر الصادق رضي الله عنه الإمام مالك في المدينة و قال عنه : إنه كان من العلماء الزهاد الذين يخشون الله

Allah be well pleased with them.
