Sufi Ghulam Mustafa Tabassum (4 August 1899–1978) was a noted 20th century poet in three languages: Urdu, Punjabi, and Persian. Tabassum (or Tabussum) was the pen name by which he was universally known.

<!-- Unsourced image removed: -->He is best known for his many poems written for children, as the creator of the Tot Batot character, and as the translator of many poetical works from Urdu and Persian into Punjabi. Sufi Tabassum's style is in the classical tradition, informed by a deep awareness of the pain and suffering that afflicts modern life.

Sufi Tabassum was born in Amritsar, India, to parents of Kashmiri ancestry. He earned a Master's degree in Persian from Forman Christian College (FCC) in Lahore. He remained with Government College Lahore for his entire career, rising to head the Department of Persian Studies.

For about fifty years he was a prominent speaker on radio and television. His poems were used as the lyrics of several songs sung by Noor Jehan.

In 1966 he received the Tamgha-e-Nishan-e-Sipaas award of the Government of Iran, and he was awarded the Sitara-i-Imtiaz by the Government of Pakistan.

Sufi Tabassum's son, Sufi Nisar Ahmed, was also a stage play writer and wrote many comedies, mainly Punjabi stage plays and television dramas.
