Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi (born 1 or 5 October 1976 Arabic: أبو إبراهيم الهاشمي القرشي ; alternative transliterations al-Qurayshi and al-Quraishi – 3 February 2022) was the second leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant from 2019 until his death in 2022.

In January 2020, media reported his true identity is Amir Mohammed Abdul Rahman al-Mawli al-Salbi (Arabic: أمير محمد عبد الرحمن المولى الصلبي ). His appointment by a shura council was announced by ISIL media on 31 October 2019, less than a week after the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Until his death, the U.S. Rewards for Justice Program offered up to $10 million reward to information that brings him to justice.

On 3 February 2022, it was reported by a U.S. official that al-Hashimi killed himself and members of his family by triggering a bomb during a raid by the United States Military.
