x Ibrahim El Desouki Mosque

The Mosque of Sidi Ibrahim El Dessouky (Dissouqi) is one of the remarkable landmarks and stop-overs in the city of Desouq, in the Governorate of Kafr El Sheikh. This grand Islamic monument was erected by the Muslim hermit Sidi Ibrahim El Dessouky (Desouqqi). The mosque is said to be one of the ten biggest mosques in the world. Its foundation took many stages. El Dessouky was buried in retreat which lies next to a Zaweyah (small mosque) built by Sultan Khalil Qalawun. Under the reign of Sultan Qaietbay, the mosque was enlarged and a mausoleum proper to the revered hermit was erected. In 1880, Khedive Tawfiq ordered the construction of the Mosque of Sidi Ibrahim El Dessouky and the enlargement of the mausoleum. At this phase, the mosque covered a space of 3000 m2. The mosque was further enlarged in 1969 under the reign of Gamal Abdel Nasser to cover an area of 6400 m2, with 11 doors, a reception place to receive and host important figures and a huge library with thousands of books and Islamic references. The mosque is a holy destination to thousands of people who swarm from different spots in the world and the Islamic countries. It worth mentioning that the mosque acquires a more glorious appearance every year during the first week of November in which the Mulid (birthday) of the Muslim hermit is celebrated. Visitors from the city and many neighboring ones come on that day to pray and enjoy the religious shows and the traditional spiritual nasheeds (songs) that are located not only near the grand mosque but everywhere in the city. A lot of buyers expose their products such as sweets and traditional religious accessories.
