Shahin Shirazi (born in Shiraz, Iran) was a Persian Jewish poet of the 14th century. He carried the honorific "Meulana".

He put the Pentateuch into Persian verse (with a Hebrew script) under the title Musa Nameh, an imitation of the famous Shahnameh in style.

His work took 30 years to finish, and was completed in 1359.
