محمد عبد الوهاب (Mohammed Abdel Wahab; also transliterated Mohammed Abd el-Wahaab) (1907 - 3rd May 1991) was a prominent 20th-century Egyptian singer and composer.

Born in the Bab El-Sheriyah area of Cairo, Egypt (where his statue stands), Abdel Wahab played oud; he also acted in several films, and composed ten songs for أم كلثوم (Oum Kalthoum). He was the first Egyptian singer to move from silent-era acting to singing.
