Hama, (Chinese: 哈麻) courtesy name (Chinese: 士廉; pinyin: Shì lián) was a Tibetan monk and official in the Yuan dynasty who was chief minister to the Shundi Emperor.[1][2]

After Toktagha's disgrace Hama was created first minister and Sue sue, his brother, chief censor of the Empire.[3] Hama was made first minister and all power was then in his hands.[clarification needed] Elated by this success, Hama decided to raise Ayushiridara to the throne. This plot was discovered, Hama was sentenced to exile and strangled by his enemies there in 1356, and Ayushiridara was pardoned.[4]
