Nur Hassan Hussein (Somali: Nuur Xasan Xuseen, Arabic: نور حسن حسين‎), also known as Nur Adde which means Light Nur, was the Prime Minister of Somalia from November 2007 to February 2009. He is from Mogadishu and is part of the Abgaal sub-clan of the Hawiye.

Hussein began his professional career in 1958 as a customs officer, two years before Somalia gained its independence. He rose through the ranks, becoming an Interpol liaison officer and eventually the country's chief police officer in charge of planning and training under the former regime of longtime President Siad Barre.

After completing studies in Law at the Somalia National University and the Fiscal Law School in Rome, Hussein became attorney general, a post he held until 1991 when the Somali Civil War broke out. He subsequently served as the Secretary General of the Somali Red Crescent Society (SRCS).
