Shha (Һ һ; italics: Һ һ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script.[1] Its form is derived from the Latin letter H (H h H h), but the capital forms are more similar to a rotated Cyrillic letter Che (Ч) because the Cyrillic letter En (Н н) already has the same form as the Latin letter H.

Shha commonly represents the voiceless glottal fricative /h/, like the pronunciation of h in "hat"; and is used in the alphabets of the following languages:
