Ya'qoob bin Ibraaheem bin Habeeb Abu Yoosuf al-Qaadhi

Name:

يَعْقُوْبُ بنُ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ بنِ حَبِيْبِ بنِ حُبَيْشِ بنِ سَعْدِ بنِ بُجَيْرِ بنِ مُعَاوِيَةَ الأَنْصَارِيُّ، الكُوْفِي أبو يوسف القاضي صاحب أبي حنيفة

Ya’qoob bin Ibraaheem bin Habeeb bin Hubaysh bin Sa’d bin Bujayr bin Mu’aawiyah al-Ansaari al-Koofi, Abu Yoosuf al-Qaadhi – the Companion of Abu Haneefah

Tabaqah: 7 - From the Major Taba Taabi'een

Birth: 113 AH.
                       
            Allaamah Abu Ja’far at-Tahaawi al-Hanafi rahimahullah said that Abu Yoosuf was born (in Koofah) on 113 AH [Taareekh Baghdaad (14/247)].
Also see, Siyar A’laam al-Nubala (8/536), Al-Ansaab of As-Sama’aani (10/308) etc.

Kawthari Kadh-dhaab and some other people have tried to push hard to prove his date of birth to be 93 AH but there is no proof for that.

Death: 5 Rabi’ uth-Thaani 182 AH during the Caliphate of Haaroon ur-Rasheed.

Teachers: Some of his teachers in Hadeeth include: Hishaam bin Urwah, Ataa bin as-Saa’ib, Yahya bin Sa’eed, Yazeed bin Abi Ziyaad, Sulemaan al-A’mash, Abu Ishaaq ash-Shaybaani, Hajjaaj bin Artaat, Ubaydullah bin Umar and many other Muhadditheen.

While in Fiqh, he was the companion of Imaam Abu Haneefah and learned Qiyaas and Raaye from him, due to which some people have criticized him.

Students: Following Muhadditheen have narrated from him: Ibn Samaa’ah, Yahya bin Ma’een, Ahmed bin Hanbal, Ali bin al-Ja’d, Ahmed bin Manee’, Ali bin Muslim at-Toosi, Asad bin Faraat, Amr an-Naaqid, and many other people.

Status: Sadooq, Hasan ul-Hadeeth

                       
  Qaadhi Abu Yoosuf is differed upon with respect to Jarh and Ta’deel. However, taking under consideration the principles of Jarh and Ta’deel, what seems to be the most authentic view is that he is at least Hasan ul-Hadeeth in the narration of Hadeeth.
