Xalil (also Khalil, Halil, Chelealeck; Tatar: Xälil, pronounced [xæˈlil]) (?–1467) was the khan of Kazan Khanate in 1463–1467 (by other accounts for a single year in 1467). He was the eldest son of khan Maxmud (Mahmudek, Mäxmüd). He ascended to the throne after his father's death. The information about his life is scarce, because the Mongols lacked a written system at the time. Upon his death, the throne passed to his brother Ibrahim.
