Re: Bravenet Form Processor Fiqh Q&A

Question: Are there any worlks that we know for sure are from Abu Hanifa? I had always thought that Fiqh al-Akbar was authenicly attributed to him, but read in the book Abu Hanifa:His Life and Work by Allamah Shibli Numani, who was himself a Hanafi that there is no surviving work of Abu Hanfia.  Not even Fiqh al-Alkbar.  What do other scholars of the school say about this?

Answer: Books like Al-Fiqh Al-Akbar, Al-Wasiyah etc. are books were composed/ collected by others, but the sayings are those of the Imaam.
