"PREFACE - My series of eminent Muslims' biographies, launched with, the publication of Al-Mamun, Was originally conceived on a grand scale. I proposed to select my heroes, not only from ruling the dynasties but also from the world of learning. The task proved too gigantic for me and I had to reduce its size by confining myself to rulers and, further, by leading out some of the dynasties. However, I did not altogether give up the idea of presenting some great men of learning, time permitting; for, as the Arabic saying goes, the sword and the pen are twins.
After the publication of Al-Mamun I started writing Al-Faruq; but after I had written a considerable part of it I had to come to a halt. Uncomprehending critics attributed all kinds of motives to me, although the reason was nothing more than this that a number of books, which it was necessary for me to consult and which were being published in Europe, had not yet become available. Rather than sit idle while waiting for those books I thought of writing on some other famous ruler, but was inhibited by the uneasy feeling of having an unfinished book on my hands, besides being haunted by my original idea of including men of learning among my heroes.
Ultimately, the latter idea prevailed so that., turning away from ruling dynasties, I explored the world of leaning for someone to write about. The sciences and arts to choose my hero from Fiqh (jurisprudence), Hadith (tradition), Adab (literatures), Mantiq (logic), philosophy and mathematics. For certain reasons I decided to make my choice from Fiqh and chose its founder and greatest master Abu Haniiah. Abu Hanifah's juristic pronouncements and formulations have held sway over the entire Muslim world for nearly twelve centuries. They were on the statute books of many Muslim empires and kingdoms and are still followed in the larger part of the Muslim world, His biographies have been written in Arabic, Persian, Turkish and several European languages, seemed to me deplorable that none had been written in Urdu, by and large the language of his followers.
No other Muslim has as many biographies written of him as Abu Hanifah has, which shows how high he ranks among the celebrities of Islam. Research and writing on personalities were developed In Islam to a degree unparalleled anywhere else. The subject was divided into several branches, entitled tarajim, tabaqat,qurun, wafayat, a'yan and sinin, and innumerable books were written in each branch; but biography, properly so called, did not make much progress. There are very few great men-scholars, poets, judges or philosophers-who have been fortunate enough to have had regular biographies written of them. Abu Hanifah is not only one of the fortunate few, but the most fortunate of them, with Shaf'i as a dose second; and many of his numerous biographers were themselves men fit to be the subject of full-blooded biographies.
