‘Ali Maḥmūd Ṭāhā (Arabic: علي محمود طه) (1901–1949) was an Egyptian romantic poet. He has been called several nicknames, such as: The Engineer and The Lost Sailor. The Egyptian literary scholar, 'Abd al-Majid 'Abidin, published an Arabic study discussing 'Ali Mahmud Taha "al-Munhandis" (the Engineer Ali Mahmud Taha) and Iliya Abu Madi in 1967, describing them both as reformist poets (sha'irayn mujaddidayn).
Furthermore, Taha's poets were politically-colored, but even provocative and patriotic, despite his death, which was before the 23rd-of-July Revolution. He was among the contributors of Al Siyasa, newspaper of the Liberal Constitutional Party.
