Sulaiman I (ca. 1400–1558, from Arabic: sulaiman سليمان; also known as Salalila from the Sanskrit syarirah शरीर), was a Rajah of the Kingdom of Tondo. A son of Dayang Kalangitan and Rajah Lontok, he converted to Islam from animism due to the missionary efforts of the Sultanate of Brunei.

Sulaiman I succeeded by his sons Rajah Matanda, who became king of Maynila, and Lakan Dula who became King of Tondo.
