Bint ‘Ubaidullah Saleem was born and raised in a household of ‘Ulama in Elgin, IL.

She grew up in the company of her great grandfather, Maulana Na’eem Saleem Sahib (may Allah have mercy on him), who served as an Ustadh of the Dawrah Hadith class at the prestigious Darul ‘Uloom Deoband, and thereafter held the same position at Darul ‘Uloom Deoband Waqf, wherein he taught alongside some of the greatest scholars of that time, such as Maulana Anzar Shah al-Kashmiri, who was the son of ‘Allamah Anwar Shah al-Kashmiri. He (Hazrat Maulana Na’eem) was also a close friend of one of the greatest minds and Islamic thinkers of the past century, Qari Tayyib Sahib, who was the grandson of the founder of Darul ‘Uloom Deoband, Maulana Qasim Nanotwi, and he served as the principal of Darul ‘Uloom Deoband for over fifty years. Maulana Na’eem Sahib moved to Elgin, IL in the 1990s, wherein Bint ‘Ubaidullah grew up watching him write his expansive tafseer, Anwar al-Qur’an. He would go on to serve as the Shaikh al-Hadith at the Institute of Islamic Education, passing away into the mercy of Allah in 2008.

Bint ‘Ubaidullah also grew up in the company of her esteemed grandfather, Maulana ‘Abdullah Saleem Sahib (may Allah allow us to continually benefit from him), who graduated from Darul ‘Uloom Deoband in the 1950s and studied under great luminaries such as Shaikh al-Islam Maulana Husain Ahmad Madani, Maulana Ibrahim Balyawi, and Maulana Fakhruddin Sahib (may Allah have mercy on them all). He also benefitted tremendously from the company of Qari Tayyib Sahib. Maulana ‘Abdullah Saleem Sahib would go on to become the head instructor for the Qira’at program at Darul ‘Uloom Deoband, receiving the title of Sadr al-Qurra. Many students studied under him, including Qari Ahmadullah Sahib, who is the current Sadr al-Qurra at Darul ‘Uloom Dabhel. Maulana ‘Abdullah Saleem Sahib moved to the United States in the 1980s and would go on to establish the Institute of Islamic Education in Elgin, IL, wherein he currently serves as the Shaikh al-Hadith.

Having grown up in such an environment of Islamic knowledge, Bint ‘Ubaidullah was embedded with a love for Qur’an and the science of Tajweed, which drove her to focus on completing her memorization of the Qur’an. Simultaneously, she would go on to study and memorize a significant portion of the Muqaddamah Jazariyyah, an essential primer in the study of Tajweed. She has served as a part-time Qur’an teacher in IIE and is currently a Qur’an teacher in Darul ‘Uloom New Jersey. She is currently working towards completing the memorization of the Qur’an. May Allah Ta’ala allow her to complete her memorization safely, securely, and swiftly.
