Edhemi a monastic order among the Mohammedans, founded by Ibrahim ibn- Edhem, who died at Damascus, A.D. 777. His disciples say that he was a slave, a native of Abyssinia, that he always desired to please God, regularly read the Koran in the mosques, and prayed day and night with his face to the ground. Edhem established a strictly ascetic order, who gave themselves much to prayer and fasting, and professed to discourse with Enoch in the wilderness.
