Helal Fajhan Al-Mutairi (1855–1938) (Arabic: هلال فجحان المطيري), Kuwaiti business man and political man in the early 1900s.

Helal was one of few wealthy merchants and political men in Kuwait. He was a very successful pearl merchant and trader, and led the first protest against Sheikh Mubarak Al-Sabah with the Kuwaiti merchant Ibrahim Al-Mudhaf. In the late 19th century, he was as a peacemaker between the Kuwaitis and the Saudi Ikhwan movement as he managed to solve Al-Jahra Battle between the Ikhwan leaders and Kuwait.

Helal had great respect for capitalism, supported the civil rights movement in Kuwait, and is remembered as an important figure in establishing freedom and prosperity in his country.
