Muhammad Qasim (born on 1 May 1984) is a Pakistani footballer, who plays for KRL FC. He is also a member of Pakistan national football team.

Qasim is a forward who can also play as a right-winger. He won the Geo Super Football League with Islamabad United in 2007.

He earned his first international cap by head coach Akhtar Mohiuddin against Iraq in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers,[1] a game which Pakistan famously drew 0-0 in Aleppo, Syria with Qasim's strong running and work-rate giving a strong impression for the coaching staff and fans alike.

His first goal came in a friendly against Nepal at Pokhara on March 27, 2008 which Pakistan won 2-0 after a long run from his own half before a powerful shot that beat the Nepalese keeper. Qasim later scored an international hat-trick in the 9-2 record win against Guam in the 2008 AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers.
