Nour Mhanna (Arabic: نور مهنا‎) (Nur Mahana) is a Syrian singer.

Mhanna started his musical career as a reciter of the Qur'an, before switching to secular music.

On 1 July 2004, he performed at the Sycuan Resort and Casino in El Cajon, California.[1] He and his backup band traveled there on Northwest Airlines Flight 327, where their behaviour lead to suspicions that they were a dry run for a future possible terrorist attack.[2]
