Al-Aathaar was not authored by Abu Haneefah
Fatwa No: 264187

Question

Is the book "Kitab al-Athar" written by Imam Abu Haneefah (r.a)?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and messenger.

As far as we know, Abu Haneefah  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him did not author a book entitled Al-Aathaar, but there is a book titled Al-Aathaar by his student Abu Yoosuf Ibraaheem ibn Ya’qoob Al-Ansaari, who died in 182 A.H.

Moreover, his other student Muhammad ibn Al-Hasan Ash-Shaybaani, who died in 189 A.H. authored a book entitled Al-Aathaar.

Allaah Knows best.
