Ilm Chain of the Hanaabilah

How the Ilm reached in our Hearts…

Al-Basra is where 1 of the 10 Mushaf of Sayyiduna Uthman Ibn al-Affan (radhiyallahu anhu) was sent. Sayyiduna Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (radhiyallahu anhu) wrapped the black Imamah around the head of his student, Imam Hasan al-Basri (rahimahullah) and licensed him to teach.

Imam Hasan al Basri (rahimahullah) did the same thing to his student Imam Habib al-Ajami (rahimahullah).

Imam al-Ajami (rahimahullah) did the same thing to Imam Sufyan Ibn al-Uyaynah (rahimahullah).

Imam Ibn Uyaynah (rahimahullah) did the same thing to Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (rahimahullah).

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) did the same thing to his son, Imam Salih al-Baghdadi (rahimahullah).

Imam Baghdadi (rahimahullah) did the same to his student Imam Abu Qasim al-Kharaqi (rahimahullah).

Imam al-Kharaqi (rahimahullah) did the same to his student ibn Battah (rahimahullah).

Imam Ibn Battah (rahimahullah) did the same thing to his student Abu Talib al-Ushari (rahimahullah).

Imam al-Ushari (rahimahullah) did the same to his student, Imam Mahfuz al-Kalwazami (rahimahullah).

Imam al-Kalwazani did the same thing to his student Imam Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani (rahimahullah).

Imam Shaykh al-Jilani (rahimahullah) did the same thing to his students and successors, Imam Abd al-Rahman Ibn Jawzi, Imam Abd al-Ghani al-Maqdisi, Imam Muwaffaq-uddin Ibn Qudamah al-Maqdisi (rahimahumullah) and others.

With the exceptions of Imam Ibn al-Jawzi (rahimahullah), all these Imams were Palestinians and this is part of the story of how this strand of Islam spread from Makkah to Medina to Palestine and the whole world.

In sha Allah, I feel all of us who follow this beautiful Madh-hab should know this.

Share it with our brothers and sisters and memorize this.
