Firmly Establishing A Book

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal [May Allah have mercy on him] said, when he was asked: (what do you say about the books of Al-Shafei that are with the Iraqis, are they more beloved to you or the ones with the Egyptians?

So he replied: Go for the ones that he has developed in Egypt, since he placed these [other] books in Iraq but did not establish [them well], but when he went to Egypt he firmly established it) ‘Manaqib Al-Imam Shafi’i’ 1/263 by al-Bayhaqi.
