Question # : 3442


I was reading Sirat Al Nauman by Allama Shbili Naumani which is a biographical work on Imam Abu Haneefa Rahimulllah. During the course of reading the writer has criticised the various stories attributed to Imam Abu Haneefa's life and have claimed them to be fantasises of biographers and historians rather than being close to the truth....for example 1. Praying Fajr Salat for 40 years with the wuzu of Isha 2. 7000 Khatms of Quran 3. Not eating meat of fish from a river for a long period 4. The same as 3 but this time it is some cow, goat or sheep.

Answer : 3442
