Question: Tell me the name of the teacher of Imam Abu Hanifa?

Imam Abu Hanifah's foremost teacher was Hammad b. Abi Sulayman, a scholar/jurist from Kufah, whom he accompanied for a period of eighteen years. We can gauge the extent of the imam's respect for his teacher when we know that he named his son after him.

May Allah be well pleased with the great imams, and grant us all the honour of joining their company under the flag of the Messenger of mercy (peace be upon him).
