Farrukh Fateh Ali Khan () (December 25, 1952- September 9, 2003) was a member of a well-known family of Qawwali musicians. He was the younger brother of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the son of Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, the nephew of Ustad Mubarak Ali Khan, and the father of Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was the leader of the family Qawwali party from 1971 till his death in 1997. Farrukh Fateh Ali Khan was one of only two people who remained members of the party throughout this period. Farrukh played the lead harmonium, and provided accompanying vocals. His talent to play in all scales and his ability to switch a tune at a moment's notice are arguably the best in his profession. While accompanying Nusrat to England, he became widely known as Harmonium Raj Sahib (King of the Harmonium). His talents and accomplishments often went unrecognized due to playing in the shadow of Nusrat. In an interview to the Pakistan Television in 1989 Nusrat revealed that very often the tunes of the qawwalies sung by the Party were composed by Farrukh. He is credited as such in some of the albums by the group, such as Shahenshah .

He remained a member of the party when his son, Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, took over the leadership of the party after Nusrat's death. Farrukh Fateh Ali Khan died on September 9, 2003.
