Abu Hanifa Mosque in Baghdad - Iraq


Abu Hanifa Mosque (Arabic: مسجد أبو حنيفة, masjid abū ḥanīfah or مسجد أبي حنيفة, masjid abī ḥanīfah‎) is one of the most prominent Sunni mosques in Baghdād, Iraq.

Abu Hanifa Mosque is built around the tomb of Abū Ḥanīfah an-Nuʿmān (often called "the Great Imam" (ألإمام الأعظم, al-imām al-aʿẓam)), the founder of the Ḥanafī madhhab or school of Islamic religious jurisprudence. It is located in the Sunni-dominated al-Aʿẓamiyyah (ألأعظمية, al-aʿẓamiyyah) quarter of Baghdad to the northeast of the city.

Imam Abu Hanifa died and was buried nearby in 105 AH / 767 AD. The small town of al-Adhamiya grew up around the shrine. In 459 AH / 1066 AD, the mosque was restored by Sharaf al-Mulk Abu Sa’id al-Khwarizmi, who added a large dome and constructed the adjacent Hanafi school.;
