It is related that when Imaam Aboo Haneefah (RA) was still a child, he dreamed tht he was digging the grave of Rasoolullah 9Sallallaahu-alayhi-wasallam). He related the dream to one of his tutors in the maktab. The teacher said to him: “My child, if your dream is genuine then you will follow in the footsteps of Rasoolullah 9Sallallaahu-alayhi-wasallam) and you will also do great research in his shari’ah”. Every word of the interpretation manifested itself to be true and correct as is known by one and all.
