Ibrahim Sulayman Muhammad Arbaysh is a citizen of Saudi Arabia who was held in extrajudicial detention in the United States's Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.[1]

The Department of Defense reports he was born on July 7, 1979, in Al Brida, Saudi Arabia.

Ibrahim Sulayman Muhammad Arbaysh was captured near the Pakistan-Afghan border and transferred to Saudi Arabia on December 13, 2006.[2]

On February 3, 2009 Saudi security officials published a new list of Saudi suspected terrorists. Al Rubaish was one of eleven of the 85 men on this list who was a former Guantanamo captive. In November 2009 a research paper from the think tank, The Jamestown Foundation asserted that Al Rubaish was now a "mufti" for Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.[3][4] The paper's author, Murad Batal Al-shishani, asserted that Al Rubaish had produced an audio tape Al Qaida had released in September attempting to justify a recent attempt to assassinate a senior member of the Saudi Royal Family. The paper asserted Al Rubaish had published a book criticizing Shaykh Salman al-Ouda, a critic of al Qaida's attacks on September 11, 2001. The paper reported that Al Rubaish had released an additional audio tape in November 2009, criticizing the Saudi government's introduction of mixed sex education for children.


Arbaysh was transferred to Saudi Arabia on December 13, 2006.

He escaped from custody and is now reported[by whom?] to be a senior figure in al-Qaeda.[3]
