- Musannaf of ibn Jurayj
His narrations are quoted in Sunan Abu Da'ud
...is sometimes said, 'The first book composed in Islam was that of Ibn Jurayj, and some said, 'the Muwatta of Malik', and some others said, 'The first man to compile and arrange according to chapters was Rabi ibn Sabih in Basra.
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".
Such a diversity can hardly be the result of systematic forgery, but, rather, must have developed over the course of time. We must therefore-until the contrary is proven-start from the assumption that the traditions for which Ibn Jurayj expressly states a person as his source really came from that informant, and thus Ibn Jurayj's transmission, in my opinion, should be regarded as authentic.
