Pinaglahuan- a Tagalog novel written by Faustino Aguilar. It is highly acclaimed as one of the greatest Tagalog novels in the annals of Philippine classic literature.

First published in 1907 by Manila Filatelico (Sta. Cruz, Manila), Pinaglahuan is a story set during the early years of the American Occupation of the Philippines. It is a tale of a forbidden love as driven by uncompromising forces in a murky early 20th century Manila society.

Pinaglahuan has been chosen by Filipiniana.net in its roster of the Greatest 100 Tagalog Novels ever written. In 2003, the novel was finally reprinted for modern readers by the Ateneo de Manila University Press. It belatedly achieved a National Book Award as part of the Panitikan series.
