The Muwatta is the first written collection of Hadith comprising the subjects of Muslim law, compiled and edited by the Imam Malik ibn Anas.

Abu Bakr ibn al-`Arabi said: “The Muwatta’ is the first foundation and the core, while al-Bukhari’s book is the second foundation in this respect. Upon these two all the rest have built, such as Muslim and al-Tirmidhi.”
