Imam Yahya b. Ma'in (R.A.) says: "Abu Hanifah was a Murji"

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
The great Imam Yahya b. Ma'in (Radiyallahu anhu) says regarding Abu Hanifah:

كان أبو حنيفة مرجئاً وكان من الدعاة, ولم يكن في الحديث بشيء

Translation: “Abu Hanifah was a Murji and he was one of the callers (to Irja), and he is nothing in Hadith”

This is an authentic narration (“Rijaaluhu Thiqaat”).
