One of his most quoted sources is Ata ibn Abi Rabah, his teacher.
According to the testimony of Ibn al-Nadim, ‘Abd ar-Razzaq as-San‘ani and Ibn Abi Shaybah, Ibn Jurayj was at least partially responsible for the standard categories and structure of fiqh works, for example placing a section on 'ibadat' (acts of worship) before 'mu'amalat' (transactions).
The scholar of Mecca, Abu Walid stated Abdul Malik bin Abdul Aziz bin Jurayj was a servant of the Banu Umayya and was amongst the Fuqaha of Mecca, he has many appellations, and is counted amongst the great ulama, he was born a few years after 70 Hijri, and he met the great Sahaba. Ahmad Ibn Hanbal said "Ibn Jurayj was a treasure of knowledge". Jarir commented that Ibn Jurayj deemed Mut'ah to be permissible, and he contracted Mut'ah with 70 women. Ibn Abdul Hakim stated "heard from Imam Shafi'i says Ibn Jurayj contracted Mut'ah with 90 women".
