'Ibrahīm Bin ʿAbd-El-ʿAzīz 'Abu al-Majd (Arabic: إبراهيم بن عبد العزيز أبو المجد), better known as El-Desouki (الدسوقي) (Desouk, Egypt, 1255 – 1296), was a Sufi saint and 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 tradition, He is a descendant of Ali ibn Abi Talib from his paternal side and to the Caliph of the Rifa'i 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.
