Re: abu hanifa and hadeeth

Question: Is it true that it is recorded in the book:  Ukoodu`l-Djawahiril Moonifa on page 32 of Murtaza Az-Zabidi from Yahya bin Nasr narrated: , i went to Abu Hanifa, his house was full of books, I asked what are these? Abu hanifa said: These are all ahadeeth, i narrated only a few of them.

Answer: I do not have a copy of this book, but I have read that he had a extracted a bases of about 40,000 hadiths that he used for his conclusions in fiqh. He stored them in a box.
