The Knowledge And Memory Of Asbagh Ibn Al-Faraj

Ibn Ma’een mentioned about Asbagh Ibn Al-Faraj (1) and said:

“He was one of the most knowledgeable of Allaah’s creation about the opinions of (Imaam) Maalik. He would know each single question, when Maalik said it and whoever disagreed with him about it.”


(1) Those who narrate from Asbagh Ibn Al-Faraj include the likes of: Imaam Bukhaaree, Yahya Ibn Ma’een, Aboo Haatim, amongst others.

Ibn Qudayb said:

“Al-Mu’tasim wrote ordering that Asbagh should be brought to him for the trial (concerning the Quraan), so he fled and went into hiding in Halwaan.”

He was born after 150H and died in Halwaan, in 225H
