Abu al-Najib Suhrawardi (Persian: ابوالنجیب عبدالقادر سهروردی)a (1097–1168) was a Sunni[1] Persian[2][3] Sufi who was born in Sohrevard near Zanjan and founded the Suhrawardiyya Sufi order.

He studied Islamic law in Baghdad, then set up a retreat by the river Tigris, where he gathered disciples, which eventually came to be the Sufi order of Suhrawardiyya.

His paternal nephew Abu Hafs Umar al-Suhrawardi expanded the order.

His name is also sometimes transcribed as Diya al-din Abu 'n-Najib as-Suhrawardi.
