Saif al-Islam Muammar al-Gaddafi (born June 25, 1972, Arabic: سيف الإسلام معمر القذافي‎, translated as "Sword of Islam, Muammar of the Qaddafa"), is a Libyan engineer and politician. He is the second son of Muammar Gaddafi, leader of Libya, and his second wife Safia Farkash. He is a part of his father's inner circle, performing public relations and diplomatic roles on behalf of his father. He has been mentioned as a possible successor, though he has denied this.

In 1994, Saif al-Islam graduated with a BSc in Engineering Science from Tripoli's Al Fateh University, and earned an MBA from Vienna's IMADEC University in 2000.

His paintings made up the bulk of the international Libyan art exhibit, "The Desert Is Not Silent" (2002–2005), a show which was supported by a host of international corporations with direct ties to the Gaddafi regime.
