Islaz is a commune in southern Romania, located in the southwestern Teleorman County, 10 km west of Turnu Măgurele. It is part of the historical province Oltenia, and is composed of two villages, Islaz and Moldoveni.

The village was first attested on July 9, 1569, and until 1950 was a part of the former Romanaţi County. It became notorious since 1848, as the site where the Proclamation of Islaz, listing the goals of the Wallachian Revolution, was publicly read (June 9, 1848).
