Islam Abbaas (born March 11, 1980) is a Palestinian-Jordanian professional basketball player. He is a member of the Jordan national basketball team.

Abbaas competed with the Jordanian team at the FIBA Asia Championship 2007 and FIBA Asia Championship 2009. In 2009, Abbaas helped the Jordanian team to a national best third-place finish by averaging 4.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.[1] The third-place finish meant that Jordan qualified for its first ever FIBA World Championship.

Although Abbaas saw limited action off the bench for most of the 2009 tournament, he scored 23 points and grabbed a tournament-high 19 rebounds in only 23 minutes of action in a first round 105-47 win over Indonesia.[2] He was also a member of the Jilin Northeast Tigers at one point.
