Imam Malik’s Saying “I Do Not Know!”


Shaykh al-Haytham ibn Jamil {May Allah have Mercy upon them} said:


الإمام مالك أنه سئل عن ثماني وأربعين مسألة فقال في اثنين وثلاثين منها: لا أدري


I heard Imam Malik {May Allah have Mercy upon him} being asked about 48 questions and he replied to 32 of them by saying, ‘I don’t know.’”
