'Ibrahīm Bin ʿAbd-El-ʿAzīz 'Abu al-Magd (Egyptian Arabic: إبراهيم بن عبد العزيز أبو المجد), better known as El Desouki (الدسوقي) (Desouk, Egypt, 1255 – 1296), 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. According to traditions and popular sayings, 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. El-Desouki was influenced by the Shadhili Sufi order and was as well close to his contemporary Sufi Ahmad al-Badawi of Tanta. 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.
Shaykh Ibrahim bin Sheikh Abdul-Aziz, known as Abul-Majdi bin Quraish Addasuqi RA was born in Dasuq-Egypt city on the last night of Shaheban 653H month which coincided with 1255M.
He was born on the eve of Syak, the scholars doubt the emergence of a tsabit month showing the entrance of Ramadan. Shaykh Ibn Harun Asshufi then said: look at this newborn child does he drink his mother's milk? So his mother replied, "from the time of the call to prayer, he stopped drinking his mother's milk."
Thus Sheikh Ibn Aaron declared that the day was the first day of the month of Ramadan and the signs of the saintiness of Sheikh Ibrahim Addasuqi RA had been revealed from the moment of his birth.
He is the fourth and final "Wali Qutub" after Sheikh Ahmad Arrifa'i RA, Sheikh Abdul-Qadir al-Jaelani RA and Shaykh Ahmad al-Badawi RA as believed by the Tashawuf scholars such as Sheikh Mahmud al-Garbawi in his book al-Ayatuzzahirah fi Manaqib al-Awliya 'wal-Aqthab al-Arba'ah, and Assayyid Abul-Huda M.bin Hasan al-Khalidi Asshayyadi in his book Farhatul-Ahbab fi Akhbar al-Arba'ah al-Ahbab and Qiladatul-Jawahir fi fi Zikril Gautsirrifa 'I wa Atba'ihil-Akabir.
He is the founder of the Thariqat known as Burhamiyyah or Dusuqiyyah. His heir as shariq Thariqat Dusuqiyyah Muhammadiyyah of this era is Maulanassyekh Mukhtar Ali Muhammad Addasuqi RA (hopefully long life, amen).
