Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi (born October 1976, Arabic: أبو إبراهيم الهاشمي القرشي; alternative transliterations al-Qurayshi and al-Quraishi) is the second and current leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

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.

The U.S. Rewards for Justice Program offers up to $10 million reward to information that brings him to justice.
