Shah Shuja Beg Arghun (Sindhi: شاہ شجاع بیگ ارغون, c. 1465 – 1524) was the first Arghun ruler of Sindh as he overcome and defeated Jam Feroz, the last ruler of the Samma dynasty, in 1520. He served as the 17th Sultan of Sindh. His reign was short-lived as he died in the year 1524. His only surviving son, Husayn Beg Arghun succeeded him as the second and last Arghun ruler.

Arghun was the son of Zunnun Beg Arghun. He was the commander-in-chief and head of the nobles at the court of Sultan Husayn Bayqara,[1] the Amīr of Khurasan and Kandahar in 1488. Arghun was unable to resist Babur's invasion of Kabul and Kandahar and retreated towards Shal and Sibi.[2][3] He stayed in Sibi and remodelled the Sibi Fort before finally settling in Sindh.[citation needed]
