These allegations against Imām Abū Ḥanīfa are baseless and have been answered numerous times within the past.

We advise you to read the following books:

1.    Imām Suyūṭi’s ‘Tabyīḍ al-Ṣaḥīfah fi Manāqibi Abī Ḥanīfah.’

2.    Imām Zāhid al-Kawthari’s ‘Ta’nīb al-Khāṭīb.’

3.    Maulānā Abdur Rashīd al-Nuʿmānī’s ‘Makānah al-Imām Abī Ḥanīfa fi al-Ḥādīth.’

Many of them are available online in PDF format. Alternatively, you may view the following:
