Saleh Muhammad Safoori (Urdu: صالح محمد صفوری‎) was a sufi poet from southern Punjab. Saleh Muhammad Safoori was the son of Mai Safoora Qadiriyya, a local saint.

He compiled the poetic collection Kulliyat-e-Saleh Muhammad Safoori.[1] The book gives an introduction to Mai Safoora, Saleh Muhammad Safoori and Ali Haider.[2] The collection contains the tales of Sassi Punnun, Sohni Mahiwal, two si-harfis, two poetic tribute to Sufi Sultan Abdul Hakeem and Jati Abdal and one in memory of his mother Mai Safoora. Other chapters present the history of the area and the style of the life of the people and the close relationship between the different religious communities settled in Sidhnai belt of River Ravi.[3]

According to the chronology quoted by Yousuf, Ali Haidar died some four years after the death of Mai Safoora. Ali Haidar died at the age of 98.
