The Scholars’ Praise For Imaam Ash-Shaafi’ee

Al-Zafraanee said:

“The people of hadeeth were sleeping until (Imaam) Ash-Shaafi’ee woke them up.”

Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal said:

“Upon the neck of every person whose hand touches an inkstand or pen is the favour of Ash-Shaafi’ee.”

Imaam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal also said:

“We did not know… the abrogating hadeeth from the abrogated hadeeth until Ash-Shaafi’ee sat with us.”

‘Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Mahdee said:

“When I saw Ar-Risaalah by Shaafi’ee, it amazed me because I saw the speech of an understanding, eloquent and sincere man, and so I supplicate for him frequently.”
