"Khosrow and Shirin", also spelled Khosrau and Shirn,Chosroes and Shirin, Husraw and Shireen and Khosru and Shirin, (Template:Lang-fa) is the title of a famous Persian tragic romance. The essential narrative is a love story of Persian origin, which is found in the great epico-historical poems of Shahnameh and which is based on historical figures that were elaborated and romanticized by later Persian poets.

Variants of the story were also told under the titles "Shirin and Farhad" or "Farhad and Shirin".
