Mullā ʿAlī al-Qārī al-Ḥanafī (d. 1014H) (rahimahullāh) is an illustrious scholar to the Ḥanafīs and he identified himself as Māturīdī in creed with leanings in Sūfism. He has a just, moderate and fair stance towards great scholars such as Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullāh) and Ibn al-Qayyim (rahimahullāh). From this we can gather that among the Ḥanafī Māturīdīs are: a) Those who are ignorant, blind, zealous fanatics who accuse scholars such as Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn al-Qayyim of tajsīm and tashbīh and b) Those who are learned, fair and just and who recognise that there is no basis upon which these scholars can be scorned and attacked and that what they were upon was what the Righteous Salaf of this ummah were upon and that if they made ijithāds for which they were criticised by those from other doctrinal schools, then at the very least, they are rewarded once.
