Malik on Istihsan: Seeking the best ruling is nine tenths of knowledge

Az-Zarkashi reported: Malik ibn Anas, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Seeking the best option (istihsan) is nine tenths of knowledge.”
Al-Baji said, “Seeking the best option as applied by the Maliki scholars means to seek the opinion that is based on the stronger of two indications in the text.”

عن الزركشي قَالَ مالك بن أنس رحمه الله تِسْعَةُ أَعْشَارِ الْعِلْمِ الِاسْتِحْسَانُ
وَقَالَ الْبَاجِيُّ مَعْنَى الِاسْتِحْسَانِ الَّذِي ذَهَبَ إلَيْهِ أَصْحَابُ مَالِكٍ هُوَ الْقَوْلُ بِأَقْوَى الدَّلِيلَيْنِ
