|Predecessor||Abdul Jalil Shah III|
|Successor||Mahmud Shah II|
|Died||February 16, 1685|
Paduka Sri Sultan Ibrahim Shah Zilu'llah fil'Alam Khalifat ul-Muminin ibni al-Marhum Yam Tuan Muda Raja Bajau was the Sultan of Johor from House of Melaka who reigned from 1677 to 1685. He was the only known son of Yamtuan Muda of Pahang, Raja Bajau and succeeded on the death of his cousin, Abdul Jalil Shah III as Sultan of Johor-Pahang-Riau-Lingga or Johor Empire.
In 1678, Laksamana Tun Abdul Jamil persuaded Ibrahim Shah to move the capital of the empire to Riau in order to effectively suppress Jambi forces, who years earlier successfully sacked the old capital of Batu Sawar. Jambi was finally subdued in 1679. In 1681, Johor forces assisted Jambi, now its vassal, in defeating Palembang and its Bugis allies.
Although Ibrahim Shah wanted to return to Johor Lama towards the end of his reign, he was persuaded against this by the family of Laksamana Tun Abdul Jamil, who grew very powerful in the mainland while the Sultan was away in Riau.
