Abu Abdullah `Ubaidullah bin Muhammad bin Battah al-`Ukbari al-Hanbali [known as Ibn Battah] was a Hanbali theologian and jurisconsult born at 'Ukbara in 304/917.[1] He learned from a number of Hanbali scholars of his time and also personally knew al-Barbahari.[1]

Ibn Batta was severely attacked by Khatib al-Baghdadi, a former Hanbali though he was defended by Ibn al-Jawzi who was much influenced by him.[2]
