Malik treats a host of issues that arise in connection with judicial rulings in this lengthy chapter of the Muwatta, beginning with the ethical duties of parties who participate in litigation, judges, witnesses, and litigants. The chapter deals with both general questions arising out of the law of evidence, and specific rules of evidence that apply in particular areas of the law.
