Fakhruddin As'ad Gurgani, also spelled as Fakhraddin Asaad Gorgani (in Persian : ), was an 11th-century Persian poet. He versified the story of Vis and Ramin, a story from the Arsacid (Parthian) period. Contemporary scholar Abdolhossein Zarrinkoub however disagrees with this view, and concludes that the story has a Pahlavi (middle-Persian) origin in the 5th-century Sassanid era. Besides Vis and Ramin, other forms of poetry have been composed by him. For example, some of his quatrains are recorded in the Nozhat al-Majales .
