Rabia Şermi Kadınefendi (née Ida) (ca. 1698 – 1732) was the wife of the Ottoman Sultan Ahmed III and mother of Abdul Hamid I.

Râbi'a Şerm-î (Sharmî)[1] was born as Ida Kovacs in Hungary, initially the third and then the second Hungarian spouse of Ottoman Sultan Ahmed III. She was the mother of Sultan Abdul Hamid I.[2] However, she was never Valide Sultan to her son because she died in 1732, forty-two years before Sultan Abdul Hamid I's accession to the Ottoman throne.[3] Her name "Şerm-î" "(Sharmî)" simply means "belonging to gift". All the remaining Ottoman Sultans are the descendants of Râbi'a Şerm-î (Sharmî) Kadın Effendi.

The burial place of Rabia Şermi is located inside the tomb of Turhan Hadice Valide Sultan, the mother of Sultan Mehmed IV, in Yeni Mosque, Eminönü, Istanbul.
