The article focuses on the reception of the Kitāb al-Muʿtamad fī uṣūl al-fiqh of Abū l-Ḥusayn al-Baṣrī among Muʿtazilī and non-Muʿtazilī Sunnīs (Shāfiʿīs, Ḥanbalīs and Ḥanafīs) and among Zaydīs.

The article which was written by Hassan Ansari and Sabine Schmidtke focuses on the reception of the Kitāb al-Muʿtamad fī uṣūl al-fiqh of Abū l-Ḥusayn al-Baṣrī among Muʿtazilī and non-Muʿtazilī Sunnīs (Shāfiʿīs, Ḥanbalīs and Ḥanafīs) and among Zaydīs.Special attention is paid to a summary of the work by Abū l-Ḥusayn’s later follower, Rukn al-Dīn Ibn al-Malāḥimī (d. 536/1141), entitled Tajrīd al-Muʿtamad. Apart from a detailed description of the Bodleian manuscript of the text, a second manuscript of the text is discussed, the current whereabouts of which are unclear.
