Abdullah al-Faisal ibn Abd al-Aziz (1922 - May 8, 2007) ( _ar. عبدالله الفيصل بن عبدالعزيز) was the eldest son of the late Saudi King, Faisal ibn Abdul Aziz, and Sultana, daughter of Ahmad ibn Muhammad of the influential al-Sudairi family of Najd.

His government service began as Viceroy of the Hejaz often deputizing as the Kingdom's Foreign Minister when accompanying his father, King Faisal, in his international travels. He also served as Minister of Health from 1949-1950 and as the Interior Minister from 1951-1959.

Prince Abdullah later retired from politics to concentrate on his business interests, the most notable being the Al Faisaliah Group which is among Saudi Arabia's most diversified business empires. He chaired the prominent King Faisal Foundation, and was also a noted poet - his publications, including "Mahrum: Min Wahye al Hirman" have been critically esteemed.
