Imaam Ahmad ibn Muhammad Hanbal RA

Commonly known as Ibn Hanbal, was the founder of the Hanbali Madhhab. Ibn Hanbal was born in Baghdad in November 780 CE. He belonged to the family of Shayban. Ibn Hanbal studied under various masters and travelled extensively to study Hadith and Fiqh. In his youth, he studied Fiqh under Imam Abu Yusuf, and learnt Hadith from Hisham, Sufyan ibn Aina and others. He was particularly disposed towards the study of Hadith, so he went to Makkah, Yemen, etc. to hear Hadith from the Muhaddithin of those places.

After he returned home, he took lessons in Fiqh from Imam ash-Shafi’i. His understanding of religious matters was determined by the traditional views, but under the Caliphs al-Ma’mun, al-Mu’tasim and al-Wasiq, he was put under pressure to subscribe to the Mu’tazilite doctrine of the Quran being a ‘creation’ and not a ‘Wahy’ (Revelation). He refused to subscribe to this teaching, thus he and several other acclaimed theologians were subjected to persecution. Whilst he was being led in chains to the Caliph al-Ma’mun at Tarsus, news came of the Caliph’s death. Under the Caliph’s successor, he patiently submitted to corporal punishment and imprisonment. read more

We will Need a Therapist

To save money, I suggested to one of my grown sons that we all live together in one house. We will need a therapist. I could tell he didn’t think it would be cost-effective when he asked, “Who’s going to pay the therapist?”
