Amīr ash-Shu‘arā’ Abū Abdullāh Muḥammad b. ‘Abd al-Malik Mu‘izzī (also written Mu'ezzi) of Neyshāpūr (born Nisa 1048 CE, died 1125) was a Persian poet. He ranks as one of the great masters of the Persian panegyric form known as qasideh.
Mu‘izzī's father, ‘Abd al-Malik Burhānī, was poet laureate of Sanjar under Malik Shāh I and Sultān Sanjar. His son followed, self-consciously, in his footsteps, styling himself as his father's deputy (nāyib) and inheriting his role. He was renowned both in his own time and to later scholarship.
His surviving divan extends to 18,000 distichs. Anvari accuses Mu'izzi of copying the verses of other poets (which cannot be proven for certain), yet Anvari himself is known to have copied Mu'izzi's verses. Mu'izzi is said to have died by the arrow shot at him by the King's son in 1125 CE for reasons unknown. He was accidentally shot by Sanjar.
