 Hanafiyyah
The Hanafi school of law was founded by Nu'man Abu Hanifah (d.767) in Kufa in Iraq.
Having originated in Iraq, the Hanafi school was favoured by the first 'Abbasid caliphs in spite of the school's opposition to the power of the caliphs.
Consequently, the Hanafi madhhab became the only authoritative code of law in the public life and official administration of justice in all the provinces of the Ottoman empire.

Born in Cairo on February 13, 1935, Hanafi began teaching in the University of Cairo while he was still an undergraduate there.

 Talk:Hanafi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I assume that the incomplete sentence and its lack of commas refers to the places that are predominantly Hanafi or follow the Hanafi madhab.
Also, where it says "Hanafi is predominant...", the word Hanafi should probably be used as an adjectives to describe those who adhere to the Hanafi school and not the school.
This information would be a valuable addition, particularly with the Abdul Rahman (convert) case so topical; Hanafi law is the default system in the Constitution of Afghanistan, and the Constitution is silent on apostasy.

 Goethe-Institut Progress - Progress and Religion - Hassan Hanafi
Hanafi tries to view the theme of progress and religion in its cultural plurality.
Hanafi also assumes that “progress contains in itself regression” and therefore is a dynamic process which can move to its contrary – regress – too, if there is not at least some kind of controlling force.
Hanafi tries to describe this from a historical point of view and finds an upward-movement from Judaism over Christianity to Islam.

 Deobandi Islam
The northern Indian Deobandi school argues that the reason Islamic societies have fallen behind the West in all spheres of endeavor is because they have been seduced by the amoral and material accoutrements of Westernization, and have deviated from the original pristine teachings of the Prophet.
Traditionally, Sunni Islam of the Hanafi school of jurisprudence was the dominant religion of Afganistan.
Although the majority of the Islamic population (Sunni) in Afghanistan and Pakistan, belong to the Hanafi sect, the theologians who have pushed Pakistan towards Islamic Radicalism for decades, as well as the ones who were the founders of the Taliban, espoused Wahabi rhetoric and ideals.

 Brouhaha over a fatwa
Most Deobandi ulama and their rivals, the Barelvis, both adherents of the Hanafi Sunni school of jurisprudence, probably believe that the fatwa is in accordance with their version of Islam because this is what is prescribed in the books of classical Hanafi law.
The fatwa is based in a ruling by Imam Abu Hanifa, putative founder of the Hanafi school, that when a woman has sex after marriage with her husband she becomes the mother of all his children and so cannot marry his son, even though that son may be from a previous marriage.
The books of Hanafi jurisprudence, he says, were written centuries after the death of the Prophet, and are based on the opinions of Hanafi ulama, and are not necessarily in accordance with the Quran on every issue.
