Can somebody buff up this article? -- Zoe
Come on historians, this guy was a pivotal figure in Ummayad history, the person who reformed it and gave way to the future expansions that made the Ummayad Empire the second largest in history, after it was facing utter destruction from its internal struggles. There has got to be alot more to this article, alot.
Sorry - not much is actually known about 'Abd al-Malik than is given in the article. I agree the emphasis is skewed. I will come back and edit the article soem day. Kleinecke 16:38, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

I can do that. there is much more actually. There are some reports about Abd al-Malik preserved here and there. I did as a matter of fact collect much of them. I did put for example some stuff at the Dome of the rock page. I will do my best to help out but I am quite busy too these days :( Almaqdisi talk to me 08:37, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks alot guys, keep up the effort.
Please forgive my ignorance, but I am confused. I happened across the Tabi‘un article, and Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan (with a link to this article) is listed under Negative view, although no reason is given. I quickly read through this article to find out why and I could not find any information.
If I missed some obvious answer in this article, I apologize; I'm a bit tired today. But otherwise I think there should be a section comparing and contrasting how he is viewed by Sunnis and Shias and possibly others, since he seems to be a significant figure. If we are talking about two different people with similar names and this article's Abd al-Malik is held in high esteem by most Islamic groups, that should be clarified in both articles.
