Hasan M. Balyuzi (7 September 1908, Shiraz, Iran – 12 February 1980, London) was a prominent Iranian Bahá'í. He was born in Iran, but he spent most of his life in Britain. Balyuzi was an Afnán, a descendant of the Báb's family, on both sides of his family. His father was governor of the Persian Gulf ports and later minister of the interior of Iran.

In 1925 he met Shoghi Effendi after which he became a Bahá'í. In 1932 he went to Britain where he studied diplomatic history at the London School of Economics. In 1933 was elected as a member of the National Spiritual Assembly of Great Britain, which he stayed until he retired in 1960. In October 1957 he was appointed a Hand of the Cause of God by Shoghi Effendi.
