Ibrahim Al-Mudhaf

Ibrahim Mudhaf Al-Mudhaf (1852-1928) (Arabic: إبراهيم مضف المضف)a Kuwaiti multimillionaire 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". Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah went to Bahrain and apologized for raising the taxes. In 1922, Sheikh Salim Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah chose him to serve in first political assembly in Kuwait.
