Better than Imam Abu Hanifah Nu'man ibn Tsabit (r.a.)?


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

A preacher in an Amritsar mosque claimed that he was more learned than Imam Abu Hanifah Nu’man ibn Tsabit (r.a.) because he remembered more ahadits.  This fact was brought to the attention of Mawlana ‘Abd al-Jabbar al-Ghaznawi (r.a.), who was his teacher.  Mawlana ‘Abd al-Jabbar (r.a.) rusticated the offender from his school, and predicted that he would become an apostate.  After a week, he became a follower of the deviant, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.  Someone later asked Mawlana ‘Abd al-Jabbar (r.a.), how he knew that that this man, called ‘Abd al-‘Ali would apostatise, he replied. “I was reminded of a hadits, from Swahih al-Bukhari, which Allah (s.w.t.) states, ‘I Declare war on the enemies of my friends.’”
