Imam Abu Hanifah would notdo Qiyyas, even ifhe found a weak Ahadith, There are two types of Qiyyyas:

1) Which is against the Qur'an and the Sunnah, this is not permissible:

2) One that is in the light of Qur'an/Sunnah, this is permissible, our Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace) also gave permisiion to Ma'az Bin Jabal to do Qiyyas
