Ibrahim Mudhaf Al-Mudhaf (1852–1928) (Arabic: إبراهيم مضف المضف) a Kuwaiti merchant and politician, who led with Helal Al-Mutairi the first protest against Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah. He immigrated to Bahrain with Helal Al-Mutairi where they led their protest after Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah raised the taxes, which negatively affected the Kuwaiti economy before the oil industry boom in Kuwait.[1] Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah went to Bahrain and apologized for raising the taxes. In 1921, Sheikh Salim Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah chose him to serve in first political assembly in Kuwait.[2] His family name Al-Mudhaf traces back to Beni Hajer.

Two of his sons died in Al-?raif Battle, and one in the Battle of Jahra.[3][4]
