Shihabuddin Sharaful-udaba Sabir, known as Adib Sabir, was a 12th-century royal poet of Persia. Originating from Termedh, he was employed in the court of Sultan Sanjar.

He is said to have also been used by the Sultan as a spy against the Sultan's enemies, who eventually drowned him in the Oxus in 1143 AD.

His Persian poetry writings are fluent and refined in style.[citation needed]
