Masuma Sultan Begum (Persian: معصومہ سلطان بیگم; born c. 1508) was a Mughal princess and the daughter of the first Mughal emperor, Babur. She is frequently mentioned in the Humayun-nama by her sister, Gulbadan Begum, who calls her sister 'Elder sister Moon' (mah chacha).
Masuma Sultan Begum was the daughter of Babur and his fourth wife, Masuma Sultan Begum. She was born in Kabul, and her mother died giving birth to her. She was given her mother's name. In 1511, Babur entrusted Kabul to his younger brother Nasir Mirza and set out for Samarkand.
