The Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan (IRPT) was an Islamic democratic political party in Tajikistan that existed from 1990 to 2015. The party was founded in 1990, and it held a conference in Saratov, Russia in 1992. Upon Tajik independence in 1993, the party was banned by the government, leading to the Tajik Civil War. In 1998, it was legalized, and it became the second-largest party in the country a year later. In 2015, it was outlawed once more, putting an end to the only legal Islamist party in Central Asia.
