Syedna Ibrahim Wajiuddin (Arabic: ابراهيم وجيه الدين‎) Bin Sayedi Abdul Qadir was 39 th Dai of Dawoodi Bohra (Death: 17 Moharram 1168 A.H./1756 A.D. Ujjain, India). He succeeded the 38th Dai Syedna Ismail Badruddin II to the religious post.

Ibrahim Wajiuddin became Da'i al-Mutlaq in 1150AH/1738AD.[1] His period of Dawat was from 1150-1168 AH/ 1738-1756 AD.

His associates were:

Mawazeen: Syedi Sheikh Adam bin Syedna Nooruddin, Syedna Hebatullah al-Moayyed fid-Deen

Mukasir: Syedi Ali bin Phirji

Syedna Ibrahim Vajihuddin, the son of Syedi Abdul Qadir Hakimuddin procured his initial education from his father. At the young age of twenty-one, Syedna Vajihuddin was sent by his father for the 'Khidmat' (service) of the Dai. Syedna Vajihuddin served Syedna Kalimuddin and Syedna Nooruddin in the most adverse of times.

In 1143H, Ujjain was affected by a severe drought. Followers of different religions prayed for rain but in vain. Syedna Vajihuddin along with Mumineen (faithful) proceeded to the banks of river Sipra and prayed to Allah for rain. On conclusion of his prayers, the people of Ujjain were indeed relieved as it soon started raining heavily.[citation needed]

He was succeeded by his son 40th Dai Syedna Hebatullah-il-Moayed- Fiddeen.
