Shuʿayb or Shoaib or Shuaib (Arabic: شُعَيب) was a divine prophet from the progeny of the prophet Ibrahim (a). He was the third Arab prophet who is mentioned in the Qur'an. According to Suras of Qur'an 7, Qur'an 11, and Qur'an 26, he was selected by God as a prophet after Nuh (a) (Noah), Hud (a), Salih (a), and Lut (a). He was the prophet of the land or the people of Midian (Madyan) and Ayka.

The Qur'an points to the story of Moses (a) (Moses) and Shu'ayb (a), referring to Shu'ayb (a) as Moses's (a) father in law, but some exegetes of the Qur'an believe that Shu'ayb (a) the prophet was different from the Shu'ayb (a) mentioned in the Qur'an and the Torah as the father of Moses's (a) wife. The Qur'an refers to the problem with the people of Shu'ayb (a) as a financial corruption on which they persisted even after Shu'ayb's (a) efforts by bringing scales and measures.
