Wadi Qabbani (Arabic: وادي قباني‎‎), also known as Khirbat ash Sheik Husein (Arabic: خربة الشيخ حسين‎‎) was a Palestinian Arab village in the Tulkarm Subdistrict. It was probably depopulated during the 1947–48 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine on March 1, 1948 as part of Operation Coastal Clearing. It was located 12 km northwest of Tulkarm.

In 1945, the village had a total population of 320. The Khirbat al-Shaykh Husayn is located in the village, which had artifacts dating to the Roman period.
