Mausoleum of Ahmad ibn Hafs al-Kabir al-Bukhari

Ahmad ibn Hafs al-Kabir al-Bukhari was born in Fagsodar mahalla of Bukhara region in 767. He traveled from Bukhara to Baghdad at the young age to comprehend the wisdom of theology and sharia law from Imam Muhammad al-Shaibani. Al-Shaibani was a student of the founder of the Hanafi madhhab (one of the four Sunni legal schools) of the legendary Imam Azam Abu Hanifah. Over a period of time, Abu Hafs Kabir became one of the largest theologians of the Muslim East. The Holy Imam is the author of a number of books on the issues of Islamic law, including Al-Akhvo val Ihtilof ("Frivolous reasoning and disagreement"), "Ar-Raddu alal-lafziyya" (Otpor Verkhoglyadam) and many others. Having returned to Bukhara, he generously shared his knowledge with everyone. It is generally believed that, spiritual and secular sciences began to prospect in Bukhara, and imams and scholars became revered because of this person. Imam Abu Hafs Kabir have become the founder of the Hanafi school in Maverannahr and have opened the first madrasah of the Hanafi school in Bukhara. There is a legend that tells: "when the holy sheikh went to the madrassah through the Bukhara market, the entire huge bustling market at that time respectfully subsided. Many students from different countries aspired to enter that educational establishment, where later his son and grandson was taught (Imam's wife, according to tradition, taught to women). Among the famous students of Imam Abu Hafs Kabir - Imam al-Bukhari, one of the most revered scientists in the Islamic world, the author of the monumental collection of authentic hadith "al-Jami al-Sahih."
