Fatwa No: 264961

Question

Assalamualaikum, How many hadeeths which have been narrated by Imam Abu Haneefah are reported in the six books of hadeeth (Sahih Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood, Nasai & Ibne Majah)? It would be very much helpful if the hadeeth reference numbers are also mentioned.

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, is His slave and messenger.

Imaam Abu Haneefah  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him is one of the competent Hadeeth scholars who were eligible for practicing Ijtihaad.

As for the Ahaadeeth and reports he had narrated in Hadeeth books, you can search for them in the academic encyclopedia like Shamela and others.

However, it should be noted that the fact that he  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him narrated few Ahaadeeth and reports [presented] in the six books of authentic Prophetic narrations (i.e. Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim, Sunan At-Tirmithi, Sunnan Abu Daawood, Sunnn An-Nasaa'i, and Sunan Ibn Maajah) does not undermine his refined status as a leading Hadeeth scholar. Please, refer to “Makaanat Al-Imaam Abu Haneefah fi Al-Hadeeth” by Shaykh Muhammad ‘Abd Ar-Rasheed An-Nu‘maani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him as he cited the words of other Hadeeth scholars in praise of Abu Haneefah  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him.

For more benefit, please refer to Fatwa 245815.

Allaah Knows best.
