Imam Malik ibn Anas compiled Al-Muwatta, the first written collection of legal work on the subject of Muslim law.

This was the earliest collection to form the basis of jurisprudence alongside the Quran.

Besides Islamic jurisprudence, Al-Muwatta consists of 1,720 hadith covering rituals, rites, customs, traditions, norms and laws from the time of prophet Muhammad.
