Imam ash-Shafi’i (r.a.) at the Maqam of Imam Abu Hanifah (r.a.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam ash-Shafi’i (r.a.) described his own experience at the maqam of Imam Abu Hanifah (r.a.): “I derive blessing from the Imam Abu Hanifah and I visit his grave every day.  When I face a problem, I offer two rak’ah of prayer and visit his grave and I pray to Allah to Solve my problem.  And I have not even left the place that my problem is solved.”

Khathib al-Baghdadi (r.a.) related the incident with a sound chain of transmission in his Tarikh al-Baghdadi.  Imam ibn Hajr al-Haytsami (r.a.) recorded this in al-Khayrat al-Hisan fi Manaqib al-Imam al-A‘azham Abu Hanifah, Imam Muhammad Zahid al-Kawtsari (r.a.) in Maqalat, and Imam ibn ‘Abidin ash-Shami (r.a.) in Radd al-Muhtar ‘ala Durr al-Mukhtar.
