Muhammad ibn al-Qasim was an official of the Abbasid Caliphate who served briefly as vizier in July–October 933 under Caliph al-Qahir (r. 932–934). He hailed from a family of Nestorian Christian origin that had served in the caliphal bureaucracy since late Umayyad times, and was the son, grandson, great-grandson and brother of viziers.
