Mosul Eyalet (Ottoman Turkish: ایالت موصل; Eyālet-i Mūṣul) was an eyalet of the Ottoman Empire. Its reported area in the 19th century was 7,832 square miles (20,280 km2). The eyalet was largely inhabited by Kurds.

Sultan Selim I defeated the army of Shah Ismail at the Battle of Çaldiran, but it wasn't until 1517 that Ottoman armies gained control of Mosul, which remained a frontier garrison city until the 1534 capture of Baghdad. The eyalet was established in 1535. Mosul then became one of three Ottoman administrative territorial units of ‘Irāk.
