He was born in the city of Zaqazeeq in the year 1872 ACE. The Shaykh Ibraheem was an Imam, teacher of Sufism, and the Shaykh of the Khaleeleyya Sufi path. Contrary to his father, he united all the followers of the path upon one litany that was divinely inspired to him by God. In addition, he gave beneficial advice, parables and wisdoms that he extracted from the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Emissaryﷺ that lit the way for his followers and filled their hearts with true faith in Allah and his Messengerﷺ.
