The Virtues of Imam Abu Hanifa

Manaqib cover2

Al-Imam al-A‘zam Abu Hanifa was the founder of the madhhab that bears his name, which was given its fullest expression by his ‘Two Companions’, Imam Abu Yusuf and Imam Muhammad ibn al-Hasan. It is the largest of the four madhhabs and is most extensive in the East, but with a sizeable presence in Europe and the West with the presence of immigrant Turkish and Pakistani Muslim communities.

Imam al-Dhahabi was born in Damascus in 673 AH. Over 1,200 scholars transmitted hadiths from him via direct transmission and ijaza. His authored works amount to almost one hundred books. He was a man of noted intelligence and a renowned hafiz. He continued to write until he lost his sight in the year 743, and died on the eve of Monday the 3rd of Dhul-Qa‘da, 748 in Damascus.

Shaykh Abu al-Wafa’ al-Afghani (1310-1395AH) was a prominent Hanafi Shaykh who studied with some of the foremost scholars of his time.

Shaykh Muhammad Zahid ibn Hasan al-Kawthari al- Hanafi al-Ash‘ari (1296-1371AH) was the adjunct to the last Shaykh al-Islam of the Ottoman Caliphate and a major Hanafi jurist praised by Imam Muhammad Abu Zahra as a Reviver (mujaddid) of the fourteenth Islamic century.

    Thank you for your quick reply. Unfortunately “9781909460058” is not bringing any results on Amazon or even in general on Google. Do you know any bookstores where I can purchase it?
