Imam Athir al-Din al-Abhari :

He is Athīr al‐Dīn al‐Mufaddal ibn ʿUmar ibn al‐Mufaddal al‐Samarqandī al‐Abharī, also known as Athīr al‐Dīn al‐Munajjim (d. in 1265 or 1262. Athir al-Din al-Abhari was a philosopher, astronomer, astrologer and mathematician. Other than his influential writings, he had many famous disciples.

His birthplace is contested among sources. According to one source he was born in Abhar, a small town between Qazwin and Zanjan. Whilst another source mentions that he was born in Mosul. Beside the city of Abhar, his epithet al-Abharī could suggest that he or his ancestors originally stem from the Abhar tribe.

He is said to have been a student or teacher in various schools at Khurāsān, Baghdad, and Arbil, living for some time in Sivas. Ibn Khallikān reports that he was student of Kamāl al‐Dīn ibn Yūnus, but other sources state that he worked as an assistant to Fakhr al‐Dīn al‐Rāzī.

Amongst his known works :

Astronomy :

    ---Risāla fī al‐Hayʾa (Treatise on astronomy),
    ---Mukhtasar fī al‐Hayʾa (Epitome on astronomy),
    ---Kashf al‐Haqāʾiq fī Tahrīr al‐Daqāʾiq, where he accepts the view that the celestial bodies do not change and maintains that stars have volition and it is the source of their motion.

Mathematics :

Several works on Islāh (Correction) of Euclid, one of which is an attempt to prove the parallel postulate, which was commented upon and criticised by Shams al-Dīn al-Samarqandī.

Philosophy :

    ---Kitāb al-Hidāyah (Hidayat al-Hikmah - Guide on Philosophy): a book dealing with the complete cycle of Hikmat, i.e., logic, natural philosophy, and metaphysics.
    ---Isāghūjī fi al-Manṭiq (Commentary on Porphyry's Isagoge), a treatise on logic.

About Allama Fadl e Haq Khayrabadi :

Allama Fazl i Haqq Khayrabadi (1212/1791-1278/1861), rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, was the son of Allama Fazl e Imam Faruqi Khayrabadi (d.1244/1829), the 'Sadr us Sudoor' of Delhi.  Allama Fazle Haq received his education in Islamic Sciences from Shah Abd 'al Qadir (d. 1230/1815) and Shah Abd' al Aziz, the Muhaddith of Delhi (1239/1824) and in rational sciences from his father. He had a phenomenal memory and memorised the Quran in a little over 4 months. Ha also completed the curriculum in Arabic, Persian and religious studies by the age of 13 and engaged himself in teaching.

Besides being a scholar of Islamic studies and theology, he was also a literary persona. More than 4,000 couplets in Arabic are attributed to him. He edited the first diwan of Mirza Ghalib on his request. On account of his deep knowledge and erudition he was called Allama and later was venerated as a great Sufi. He was also bestowed with the title Imam Hikmat & Kalaam (The Imam of logic, philosophy and literature). He was considered the final authority on issuing fatwas or religious rulings.  He is perhaps most remembered for issuing a fatwa in favour of Jihad against the 'British' in 1857 and against the Wahhabi extremists. He sadly passed away in custody in the Adaman Islands, in 1861.
