Sheikh Said of Palu or Piran (Kurdish: شێخ سەعیدی ,Şêx Seîd‎,[1][2] 1865 – June 29, 1925) was a Zaza Kurd sheikh of the Sunni order[3] and one of the leaders of Kurdish rebellion, also known as the Sheikh Said Rebellion.[4]

He was originally from Çılsütun, Bismil,[5][6] but his family moved to today's Dicle district of Diyarbakır Province later moved to Hınıs, Erzurum. He was a revered sheikh of the Naqshbandi school of Sufism.

He was captured in mid-April 1925 and hanged in Amed with most of the other rebel leaders after being tricked by Turkish troops, commanded by Ali Riza Artunkal.[7]

His grandson, Abdülmelik Fırat, was a member of parliament.[8] Fırat says that his ancestors were not involved in politics until his grandfather, for they had cordial relations with the Ottoman elite.
