Abstract This study explores the intellectual legacy of the Kūfan jurist Muḥammad b. Sulaymān al-Kūfī (d. early 4th/10th century) who eventually settled in Yemen and was part of the intellectual circle surrounding al-Hādī ilā l-Ḥaqq Yaḥyā b. al-Ḥusayn (d. 298/911). It offers an analysis of his most important work, Kitāb al-–Muntaḫab, through a singular ritual law case study that focuses on the use of the basmala in the daily prayer. The conclusion points towards the Muntaḫab’s value as a possible conduit for accessing a stream of Kūfan jurisprudence which has not survived into the modern period.
