Sultan Abdul Jalil Karamatullah Nasiruddin Mukhataram Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Idris Murshidul Azzam Shah Rahmatullah KCMG (23 April 1868 – 26 October 1918) was a 29th Sultan of Perak. Perak was part of the Federated Malay States.

Raja Abdul Jalil ascended the Perak throne in 1916 following the death of his father Sultan Idris Murshidul Azzam Shah Ibni Almarhum Raja Bendahara Alang Iskandar Teja.

Sultan Abdul Jalil’s reign was somewhat brief and lasted only two years and ten months. He died on 26 October 1918 at age 50 and was interred next to his late father at the Al-Ghufran Royal Mausoleum in Bukit Chandan. He was succeeded by his half-brother - Sultan Iskandar Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Idris Murshidul Azzam Shah I Rahmatullah.

The Sultan Abdul Jalil Shah Bridge which crosses the Perak River at Kuala Kangsar and Sultan Abdul Jalil Shah Campus (KSAJS), Sultan Idris Education University at Tanjong Malim are named in his honour.
