The confession of Sunni scholars to the knowledge and jurisprudence of Imam Sadeq (P.B.U.H)

Malik Ibn Anas, Muslim jurist and the Imam of the law school of Malikites, which is named after him; ca. 710-796. He is frequently called briefly the Imam of Medina. His great work, "the book of the smoothed path" is the earliest surviving Muslim law-book. Malik introduced the recognition of the unanimous practice of Medina, which he established as an organized juridical system. He thus created a theoretical standard for matters which were not settled from the point of view of consensus.
He says: "most of the time Imam Sadeq had a cheerful smile." Malik believes there will be never a person as superior as the Imam.

Muhammad Shahrestani, principal Muslim historian of religions in the Middle Ages; 1076-1153.
According to Shahrestani, Imam Sadeq had a great virtue and a profound knowledge.
Shahrestani is strongly against Shia, but has a considerable respect for Imam Sadeq.

Abu Othman Jahez, famous Arab prose writer of Basra; 776-869. a real master of the Arabic language.
Jahez was contemporary with Imam Sadeq (he may was a child in time of the Imam).
"all over the world is full of the knowledge and jurisprudence of Jafar Ibn Muhammad (Imam Sadeq)" said Jahez.

Ahmad Amin, Egyptian scholar and writer; 1886-1954.
He is also one of the strong opponents of Shi'ite but he holds the Imam in a high respect. He never respected the Sunni Imam in this manner.
