The above link takes you to “11” excellent audio lectures in Urdu by Dr. Murtaza Bin Baksh [hafidhahullaah] explaining in detail the Aqidah of Imaam Abu Hanifah and his students from Fiqhul Akbar & Aqidah at-Tahaawi

Aqidah Of Imaam Abu Hanifah (d. 150H – rahimahullaah) And His Golden Advices To The Ummah

It is agreed upon by the people of verification that Imaam Abu Hanifah (d.150 H), and this two companions Abu Yusuf Ya’qub bin Ibraaheem al-Ansaaree (d.182H), and Muhammad bin al-Hasan ash-Shaybaanee (d.189H), and others besides them likewise Abu Ja’far at-Tahaawi (d.321H),  were all upon the Salafi aqidah, and they are also from the generality of the Salaf of this ummah, like the other prominent scholars and Imaams of Ahl us-Sunnah in that time.

Imaam Abu Hanifah (d. 150H – rahimahullaah) never called people to blindly follow him, rather he advised the ummah to adhere to the teachings of the Noble Qur’aan, authentic ahadeeth and the understanding and narrations of Salaf as-Salih and warning from bidah (innovations)

It is reported from him, that he said :

” عليك بالأثر وطريقة السلف, وإياك وكل محدثة فإنها بدعة ” ذم التأويل لابن قدامة المقدسي ص 13

“Adhere to the athar (narration) and the tareeqah (way) of the Salaf (Pious Predecessors) and beware of newly invented matters for all of it is innovation” 
Ibn Qudama al-Maqdisi  in Dhamm-ut-Ta’weel (pg. 13)

It is even reported from him, that he said :

” إذا قلت قولا يخالف كتاب الله تعالى وخبر الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم فاتركوا قولي  – الفلاني في الإيقاظ ص 50

If I say something contradicting the Book of Allaah the Exalted or what is narrated from the Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), then ignore my saying.”
Al-Fulaani in Eeqaaz al-Himam (pg. 50)

And one of his most famous saying was :

”إذا صح الحديث فهو مذهبي – “ ابن عابدين في ” الحاشية ” 1/63

When a hadeeth is found to be saheeh (authentic), then that is my madhhab (view). 
Ibn ‘Aabideen in al-Haashiyah (1/63)

Note :

Not all the opinions that Ahlul Bidah Wal Hawa (people of innovation and desires) such Barelvis, Deoband, Tablighees and others attribute to him are this words and actions, rather much contradicts with, what his actual reported about him from the reliable sources. It is true that, he fell into a some mistakes but when truth became clear to him he retracted. His weakness in the field of hadith is a fact but it dose not effect his noble status as an “Imaam” in Islam.
