Muhammad Husayn al-Tabrizi (d. 17 Rajab AH 985/30 September 1577 AD) was a known calligrapher of nasta'liq of the Safavid period. He was in charge of the inscriptions on monuments and government buildings during the reign of Shah Isma'il II (AH 984-85/1576-78 AD). None of his recorded works are dated (Mehdi Bayani, Ahval va Asar-e Khosh-Nevisan, Vol. III, Tehran, 1348 sh, pp. 680-83).
