Sheikh Muhammad al-Sabah Al-Sabah (1831 – May 17, 1896) was the sixth emir of Kuwait from the Al-Sabah dynasty. He ruled between May 1892 and May 17, 1896 during which he held the title of Pasha from the Ottoman Sultan. He was the second son of Sabah II Al-Sabah and succeeded his half-brother Abdullah II Al-Sabah upon his death. He was assassinated in his House by his brother, Mubarak Al-Sabah.

The events of his assassination are still told by the elders of Kuwait. Stories are told of Sheikh Mubarak with his guards went to the emir's (mohamed's) house, where he ordered his guards to barricade the house while Mubarak entered into mohamad's house, and killed the Emir Mohamed in his bedroom in cold blood. Mohamed the sixth emir was believed to be loved by the Kuwaitis due to his kind nature. He was never feared by the Kuwaitis, and highly respected unlike his successor, Mubarak, who was feared by the people of Kuwait.
