Sheikh Mustapha Ibrahim is a religious scholar who has written over twenty books. He is among the few Islamic scholars in Ghana who have had the benefits of both classical Islamic training (the madrasa study circle) and the modern secular model. He founded the Islamic Council for Development and Humanitarian Services (ICODEHS) in 1996 to help reduce the high level of poverty in the society and empower the less privileged. In collaboration with several partner NGOs in the Arab and Muslim world, ICODEHS’ humanitarian footprints have spread throughout Ghana and into about 10 countries in West Africa.
