Sulayman ibn al-Hasan ibn Makhlad (fl. ca. 930–940) was an official of the Abbasid Caliphate. The son of the former vizier al-Hasan ibn Makhlad al-Jarrah, Sulayman rose to occupy the office of vizier three times, in 930–931, 936, and lastly in 940–941, under the amir al-umara Bajkam. According to the modern chronicler of the Abbasid vizierate, Dominique Sourdel, he was "remarkable mainly for his ineptitude".
