Rustam Haidar (Arabic: رستم حيدر‎) (born 1889 in Baalbek; died 22 January 1940) was a politician and an aide to Emir Faisal who served as the Defense and Finance Ministers of Iraq, of Lebanese descent. He was Minister of Finance from 1930 to 1932 and from 1938 to 1940. A Shia, he was targeted by other leading politicians for his faith.

On January 18, 1940, Hussein Fawzi Tawfik shot Rustam Haidar three times; he died four days later in hospital from his wounds.
