EtymologyEdit

From Arabic عَبْد(ʿabd, servant [of]) + ال(al-, the).

PronunciationEdit

Proper nounEdit

Abdul

  1. A male given name used by Muslims.

Usage notesEdit

Abdul is a transliteration of Arabic for "servant of the", to be followed by one of the 99 names, or epithets, of Allah; e.g., Abdullatif. Both the epithet Latif ('the All-gentle') and the whole name Abdullatif ('servant of the All-gentle') are given to Muslim men. Women receive the feminine form of one of God’s epithets, such as Latifa. Abdul is not the same name as Abdullah.
