He is known as an artist and calligrapher, as well as the patron of Sharaf ad-Din Ali Yazdi"s biography of Timur. Known to be observant in matters of religion, he personally scribed pious inscriptions on two madrasas he founded in Shiraz and at least five copies of the Qur"an. There remains a handwritten Qur"an in two volumes by him written in Naskh script.
Every page of this Qur"an, finished in June 1427, has profusely decorated margins of floral scrolls in gold and color.
This two-part Qur"an is a splendid example of lavish manuscript production in the early Timurid period. They were stored in a small room on top of the Qur"an Gate in Shiraz.
Travelers passing underneath the gates were believed to receive the blessing of the Holy Book as they began their trip or journey from Shiraz. In 1937 the two Qur"ans were taken from the gate and were taken to the Pars Museum in Shiraz, where they remain today.
Sultan Ibrahim is also said to have repaired the Masjid-i Atiq but that soon thereafter it was again ruined by an earthquake.
