“He is As-Sheikh Al-Allaamah, Al-Muhaddith, Abul-Hasan Ubaidallah ibn Abdus-Salaam Ar-Rahmaanee Al-Mubaarakfuree, author of Mir’aatul-Mafaateeh Sharh Mishkaat Al-Masaabeeh, Ar-Rahmaanee is an ascription to Al-Madrasatur-Rahmaaniyyah in Dehli (India).

And he passed his studies at Madrasatur-Rahmaaniyyah with honors and graduated in the year 1345 Hijrah, and immediately following his graduation he was appointed by Ash-Sheikh ‘Ataar-Rahmaan to Madrasatur-Rahmaaniyyah, the same school he had graduated from.

And it is known that Ash-Sheikh Abdur-Rahmaan Al-Mubaarakfuree, the author of Tuhfatul-Ahwadhee

, went blind before completing the explanation, and was in need of a scholar who specialized in the sciences of Hadeeth to aid him in the completion of his explanation, so As-Sheikh Ataar-Rahmaan sent Sheikh Ubaidallah Ar-Rahmaanee, from his own money, to Mubaarakfur to help him complete the explanation, so he stayed with him for two years until he completed the explanation of the book then he returned to Madrasatur-Rahmaaniyyah to teach. He authored many works from the most significant of them Mir’aatul-Mafaateeh Sharh Mishkaat Al-Masaabeeh. He died 10/22/1414 Hijrah in Mubaarakfur.

This biography was taken from the book: Taraajim Ulemaal-Hadeeth fil-Hind (biographies of the scholars of Hadeeth in India) [1/372], in Urdu, it was translated for me by our Sheikh Waseeullah Abbaas.”
