Sheikh Hussein Bin Muhammad Bin Mubarak Al-Adasani was a judge in Al-Ahsa. According to a biography of him published in Al-Arab Magazine in 2001 AD / 1422 AH (Issue Nos. 7 and 8), many of his descendants within the Al-Adasani family were also judges. Note that a second biography of him (authored by us) was published in the same magazine in the year 2005 AD / 1426 AH (Issue Nos. 7 and 8).
After the descendants of Sheikh Saleh Al-Ateeqi settled in Kuwait, the above-mentioned manuscript was given to Sheikh Abdullah Bin Khalaf Al-Duhaian. In 1397 AH, his heirs donated it to the library at the Ministry of Awqaf.
