Mustapha Qusay Hussein al-Tikriti (January 3, 1989 – July 22, 2003) was the son of Qusay Hussein, and grandson of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Following his father's rise to heir apparent of Iraq around 2000, he was likely destined to rule as President had the Ba'athist regime been sustained in power.

On July 22, 2003, 14-year-old Mustapha was killed along with his father Qusay and paternal uncle Uday, during a raid by U.S. troops on a home in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul. Circumstances of his death remain uncertain.
