Ibrahim started reading at an early age, influenced by his grandmother's storytelling of African folktales. He picked up his first James Hadley Chase novel at 8; and for the love of stories, was already done with both the Quran and the Bible by the time he was 10.
He sees himself as a seeker and a truth-sayer. His works explore a wide range of topics, mostly equality and slavery then and now, all from an African perspective. He is presently working on his first book; a collection of short stories.
His writing has appeared (or is forthcoming) in The Journal of African Youth Literature, OkadaBooks, Black Muslim Reads Anthology, and Sub-Saharan Magazine.
