A Camel’s Load of Knowledge

A Camel’s Load of Knowledge

Besides gaining and learning from Imaam Maalik, Imaam Shaafi’ also benefitted a lot from the righteous pupil of Imaam Abu Haneefah, Imaam Muhammed Bin Al-Hasan Ash-Shaibaani (Rahmatullahi alaihim). He thus says: “I gained a camel’s load of knowledge from Muhammed Bin Al-Hasan. And this knowledge was merely what I had heard from him.”

In other words, that was besides the knowledge Imaam Shaafi’ gained from the study of Imaam Muhammad’s Kitaabs.
