Imam Abu hanifah  is known in the Islamic world as al-imâm al-a`zam  and his school has the largest number of followers among the four schools of Ahl al-Sunna.
He was the first of the four mujtahid imams and  the first in Islam to organize the writing of fiqh under sub-headings embracing the whole of the Law, beginning with purity (tahara) followed by prayer (sala), an order which was retained by all subsequent scholars such as Malik, Shafi`i, Abu Dawud, Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, and others.

Not only was Imam Abu Hanifah's extraordinary mind and knowledge something to be admired but so too was his exemplary character and piety. He is an Example of a true Scholar

The Mejelle
English Translation of:
 Majallah el-Ahkam-i-Adilya and a Complete Code on Islamic Civili Law
Paperback  379 pages
ISBN 9839541129
Published The Other Press, Petailing, Malaysia 
Translated By CR Tyser, DG Demetriades, & HI Effendi

The Mejelle was the civil code of the Ottoman Caliphate, and is considered to be the first attempt to codify Islamic law. In recent decades many research works have been undertaken to examine the provisions contained in Mejelle and the extent of compatibility to the current civil codes of many Muslim countries. Today the Mejelle is used as one of the main sources of the study of Islamic law in institutions of higher learning. This new reprint appeals not only to academics but also practitioners

A duty is cast on those learned in the law to explore the vast area of the development of Islamic Law, through the centuries after the Hijrah in order to bring out the essential prnciples on which the edifice of Law rests.

The Mejelle (Majallah el-Ahkam-i-Adilya) was elaborated between 1869 and 1875 as part of the legislative purpose of the tanzimat and based on the Hanafi law of fiqh.
