Wadi Feiran (French: Ouadi Feîran), sometimes also known as the Wadi Paran, is an 81-mile (130 km) wadi on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. Its upper reaches, around the Jebel Musa, are known as the Wadi el-Sheikh (French: Ouadi Esh Sheikh). It empties into the Red Sea's Gulf of Suez 18 miles (29 km) southeast of Abu Rodeis.
It is associated with the Hebrew Scriptures' Rephidim.
The Feiran Oasis was formerly known as El Hesweh. It runs for about 3 miles (4.8 km) of the length of the wadi, 28 miles (45 km) above its mouth. Its thousands of dates have drawn visitors for millennia and are currently inhabited by the Gabaly Bedouins. A monk from St Catherine's also maintains a small church and farmstead. Ptolemy identified the area as the site of Paran. The nearby hill is the Tell Feiran.
