Imam ‘Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak (r.a.), had a Falling Out with Imam Abu Hanifah (r.a.)
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Speaking about Imam ‘Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak (r.a.), Imam ash-Shirazi (r.a.) said, “He learned fiqh with Malik and ats-Tsawri, and he was the first of Abu Hanifah’s companions. Then, he left him and abandoned his madzhab.”
Imam ibn Waddah (r.a.) said, “In the end, he avoided mentioning Abu Hanifah in his books, and he did not read his work to people.”
All the people here are great scholars. It does not mean they were all friends, or got along.
