Ibrahim El Desouki was an Egyptian Imam and the founder of the Desouki Order. El Desouki was born in Desouk on the Nile delta and there he lived his whole life, hence his attribution to it. He is a descendant of Ali ibn Abi Talib from his paternal side and to the caliph of the Dasooqi order in Egypt from his maternal side. He became Sheikh ul-Islam of Egypt during Baibars' rule.

His feast is celebrated twice a year: the first during April, and the second on October the 2nd.
