Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal condemned Imam Abu Hanifa
Ahl'ul Sunnah's recognized scholar Imam Fakhruddin Razi, writes as follows in "Risalaah thurjeeya Madhhab Shaafee" as taken from "Isthaksa Al Alhfam" page 233:
"Imam Ahmad Hanbal was asked about Imam Malik. The reply was 'his Hadith are correct but the narrators are weak.' Then someone asked him about Imam Shafi'i, the reply was, 'his Hadith and opinion is correct.' Then someone asked about Imam Abu Hanifa, he said "Numan's opinion and his hadith bear no value'."
Baihaqi noted that:
"Imam Ahmad cautioned Imam Abu Hanifa because he would accept weak and fabricated Hadith" (Tarikh al Baghdad Volume 13 page 411)
"Imam Hanbal said that a goats faeces is on par with fatwas of Abu Hanifa" (Tarikh al Baghdad Volume 13 page 418)
" Ahmad bin Hassan Tirmidhi quotes, 'I heard Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal say that Abu Hanifa is a liar". (Tarikh al Baghdad Volume 13 page 418)
Imam Malik condemned Abu Hanifa
Dr Islam Mahmood Misri, wrote an article "Shi'a aur Sunni" for the Egyptian magazine "Mukhthar al Islami" - issue 90, 8th edition, Jamadhi al Awwal 1406 Hijri. On page 13 (where the article is located) we read:
"Imam Malik said that Abu Hanifa was the worst of people and that it would have been easier for him to raise his sword against the Muslims".
In Tarikh al Baghdad Volume 13 page 392, we read:
"Imam Malik said that for the Muslims Abu Hanifa's Fitnah is more damaging than the Fitnah of Shaytan".
In the same book we read further comments by Imam Malik:
"Imam Malik bin Anas stated that in Islam, no one has damaged it more than Numan" (Tarikh al Baghdad Volume 13 page 396)
"Once Imam Malik asked Walid bin Muslim: 'do people listen to Abu Hanifa in your city? he said: 'yes.' Imam Malik replied 'its amazing that your city has not been destroyed .Imam Malik said Abu Hanifa mocked Allah's Deen, whoever does so is irreligious." (Tarikh al Baghdad Volume 13 page 400)
Imam Idrees Shafi'i condemned Imam Abu Hanifa
In Tarikh Baghdad Volume 13 page 398 we read:
"Imam Shafi'i said that no-one more mischievous has appeared in Islam than Abu Hanifa"
Again Baghdad records this:
Also in Tarikh Baghdad Volume 13 page 411 we read:
"Imam Shafi'i said that Imam Abu Hanifa's Fatwas are like a chameleon, they continually changes their colors"
