|Sheikhdom of Shaib
|State of the Federation of South Arabia|
|Historical era||20th century|
Shaib or Sha‘ib (Arabic: شعيب Shu‘ayb), or the Sheikhdom of Shaib (Arabic: مشيخة الشعيب Mashyakhat ash-Shu‘ayb), was a state in the Aden Protectorate, South Arabia. The area is now part of the Republic of Yemen.
The Sha`ib Sheikhdom was established at an uncertain date in the 18th century. After becoming a British protectorate, it eventually joined the Federation of Arab Emirates of the South as well as its successor, the Federation of South Arabia.  Its last sheikh, Yahya Mohamed Al-Kholaqi Al-Saqladi, was exiled in 1967 upon the founding of the People's Republic of South Yemen. He died in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in July 2001.
The rulers of the Sha`ib Sheikhdom had the title of Shaykh Sha`ib.
