Mehmed Emin Rauf Pasha (1780–1859) was grand vizier of the Ottoman Empire twice under Mahmud II "Adlî" (r. 1808–1839) and three times under Abdülmecit I (r. 1839–1861) during the Tanzimat period of reformation.

According to Shaw and Shaw, Mehmed Emin Rauf Pasha and his predecessor, Mustafa Reşit Pasha, "acted mainly as mediators" for Mahmud II, "attempting to balance conflicting interests while participating in the factional activities and disputes endemic in Ottoman governmental life."
