Download PDF: [S] Imam Shaybani memories the Qur’an
An amazing story mentioned in “Tafseer Ruhul Bayaan.”
It is mentioned that when Imam Muhammad Ash Shaybani – may Allah be pleased with him – arrived in blessed court of Imam A’zam, Imam Abu Hanifah – may Allah be pleased with him – he was still young. The great Imam told him to go and memorise the Qur’an and when he had completed this, he could enter his classes.
Imam Muhammad – may Allah be pleased with him – then returned home and came back after eight days. When Imam A’zam – may Allah be pleased with him – saw him, he asked, “Did I not tell you to first memorize the Qur’an and when you have completed this, then only you were to return?”
Imam Muhammad – may Allah be pleased with him – replied, “Hadrat! I have followed your instructions and have memorised the Qur’an, this is the reason that I have returned!”
In other words, within seven days, he memorised the complete Qur’an.
