HZ. PEYGAMBER'İN ANNE-BABASININ (EBEVEYN-i RESÃ›L) DîNÃŽ KONUMUNA DAİR EBÃ› HANÃŽFE'YE ATFEDİ-LEN GÖRÜŞ ETRAFINDAKİ TARTIŞMALAR Mustafa AKÇAY
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)â€Ÿs father Abdullah and mother Amina had lived in the era of jahiliyya (the age of ignorance), i.e. before the revelation of Islam. Their religious sta-tus was wondered by both the Messenger Muhammad (PBUH) and his companions. The issue took shape as a matter of belief and ethics and persisted till today generating a literature on this topic. Imam Abu Hanifahâ€Ÿs words revealing his thoughts on the re-ligious status of the Messengerâ€Ÿs parent became an important reference for the subse-quent scholars of Islam. His exact wording on the matter varied in the copies of al-Fiqh al-Akbar. Thus, such difference led to the emergence of diverse comments and inter-pretations about what the Abu Hanifahâ€Ÿs views on the matter was.
