Shahabuddin Mohammed Shah Jahan, também escrito Shah Jehan, Shahjehan e Xá Jeã, شاه ‌جهان em persa , foi um governante e imperador do Império Mogol, no subcontinente indiano, entre 1628 e 1658. O nome Shah Jahan vem do persa e significa "Rei do Mundo". Foi o quinto soberano mogol, depois de Babur, Humayun, Akbar e Jahangir.

Queria expandir o seu império, como o seu avô Akbar, mas Shah Jahan é mais conhecido como o construtor do mausoléu Taj Mahal, que foi erguido para sua segunda esposa persa, Arjumand Bano Begum, popularmente conhecida como Mumtaz Mahal , com quem se casou em 10 de maio de 1612, com a idade de 20 anos, e que morreu ao dar à luz o seu 14.º filho.
