Abū Ḥanīfa al-Nuʿmān b. Thābit (Arabic:أبو حنيفة النعمان بن ثابت), (b. 80/699 - d. 150/767) was a scholar of fiqh and theology in Kufa and the founder of Hanafiyya, one of the four sects of Sunni Islam. Hanafis refer to him as "al-Imam al-A'zam" (the greatest leader) and "Siraj al-A'imma" (the light of the leaders).
