In this article we shall prove that Kitab Al Athar is proven from Imam Abu Yusuf r.a.
Kitab Al Athar is actually a book of Hadith that was written by Imam Abu Hanifa r.a and his many students narrated this book from him and Imam Abu Yusuf r.a is one of his such students. Then, many scholars narrated this book Kitab Al Athar from Abu Yusuf and from those who narrated the book, is his own Son, Imam, Faqih Qadhi Yusuf bin Abu Yusuf H198.

His father Imam Abu Yusuf taught him great deal of his own books and Imam Yusuf bin abu yusuf knew & mastered matters of Qada more than Abu Yusuf and his intellect and Memory knew no limits! This confirms that Imam yusuf bin abu yusuf was a trustworthy & Sudooq narrator Ref: Akhbarul Qada vol3 pg257

A Wahabi Najdi Salafi Kharjite Allegation ANSWERED BELOW:
Salafi Terrorist Pseudo Muhaddith Zubair Zai said:
The venom he had in his blackhole type black heart lost control like totally and he in his ugly hatred said that Imam Al Khuwarzami forged the chain of Abu Yusuf’s Umro Bin Abi Umro of Kitab al Athar lil Qadhee Ref: Maqalat Zubair Zai vol1 pg546. Astagfirullah. I pray to Allah that he INCREASES his TORMENT in the Hellfire!
But you see, the thing is black heart cant see stuff we all normal beings see. This terrorist CULT pseudo Ahle Hadith group should also throw some cheap fatwas on Imam Dhahabi, because he also narrated it through that same chain! what the heck r u saying Najdis
I shall not stop writing and i will try my best to expose these kharjis najdis and the likes of Zubair Zai Lanati! stay tuned for more educational posts!
