Süleyman Şefik Pasha (Turkish: Süleyman Şefik Paşa) was the commander of Kuvâ-i İnzibâtiyye (Ottoman Turkish: قوا انضباطيّه, literally "Forces of Order"; Turkish: Hilafet Ordusu, or "Caliphate Army"), which was an army established on 18 April 1920 by the imperial government of the Ottoman Empire in order to fight against the Turkish National Movement in the aftermath of World War I.
He was born in 1860 in Erzurum to Ali Kemali Pasha, who served as governor of Rumelia (the Balkans), Tripolitania (Libya), Mosul, and Konya. His family was long known as the Söylemezoğulları (descendants of a man nicknamed Söylemez, "won't tell").
He was the grandfather of Turkish musician Şehrazat and the father of Princess Perizat Osmanoğlu and Siham Kemali Söylemezoğlu, the first mining magnate in Turkey. After the Surname Law of 1934, his family adopted their family name as their official surname, Söylemezoğlu.
He died in 1946 in İstanbul.
