Abu Hanifa and the false prophet 

During the time of Abu Hanifa, one man declared himself a prophet. "Give the time - he said - and I will create a miracle". "Who is waiting for a miracle from him - said Imam - he falls in disbelief. For those expectations, he rejects the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him): "There is no prophet after me"".

Abu Hanifa and knowledge 

When Imam Abu Hanifa was asked, "How did you acquire knowledge?" - He replied: "Because of praise and gratitude. Whenever my knowledge grow, I praised God and thanked Him, and He increased them even more".

Abu Hanifa - Imam who does not laugh

One of Abu Hanifa's contemporaries said that he had never seen the Imam laughed, he just smiled.

Abu Hanifa - a lesson at the hairdresser

Abu Hanifa recalled:

Regarding the rites of Mecca [ie rites of the hajj] I made a mistake in the five issues in respect of which the truth has taught me Barber. That was when I wanted to shave my head.

- Are you an Arab? - He asked me.

- Yes, - I answered. - How much will be cost to shave me?

- In piety do not agree - he said, keeping in mind that during the Hajj should not enter into contracts. - Sit down!

I sat down without turning to Kaaba. He turned me toward Kaaba. I wanted him to shave my head, starting from the left side, but he said:

- Open to me the right side.

I did so. He began to shave me, and I was silent.

- Doxology (kabbir).

I began to praise God until got up to leave.

- Where are you going?

- In a way.

- Pray two rak'at and then go to.

All this at a Barber, I thought, not otherwise, as some scientist. And said to him:

- Where did you get all that you commanded me?

- I saw that Ata ibn Abi Rabah did so.
