Hanafi Belief: "The Book 'Hidayah' is Like the Quran"

In the introduction to the classical book of Hanafi jurisprudence, it is written:

إِنَّ الهِدَايَةَ كَالقُرْآنِ قَدْ نَسَخَتْ مَا صَنَّفُوا قَبْلَهَا فِي الشَّرْع مِنْ كُتُبٍ

"Verily, the book Hidayah is like the Qur'an, it has abrogated the books of Shari'ah before it.”

On the other hand, the belief of the saved sect Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah is that there is no book which is like or comparable to the Pure and Holy Quran. It is the literal Speech and Words of our Lord and Master, Allah (Azza wa Jall)

In fact, Allah in the Quran challenges the disbelievers who allege the Quran is forged to produce a Surah which is similar to one of the Surahs (chapters) of the Quran if they are truthful (Surah #10 Ayat #38). Hanafis claim that let alone a single chapter, their entire book 'Al-Hidayah' is like the Quran!
