Abdul Malik (Arabic: عبد الملك‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) is an Arabic (Muslim or Christian) male given name and, in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Malik. The name means "servant of the King", in the Christian instance 'King' meaning 'King of Kings' as in Jesus Christ and in Islam,Al-Malik being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.<ref name=ahmed>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref><ref name=rahman>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref>

The letter a of the al- is unstressed, and can be transliterated by almost any vowel, often by e. So the first part can appear as Abdel, Abdul or Abd-al. The second part may appear as Malik, Malek or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.

There is a distinct but related name, Abdul Maalik (Arabic: عبد المالك‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}), meaning "servant of the Owner", referring to the Qur'anic name Mālik-ul-Mulk. The two names are difficult to distinguish in transliteration, and some of the names below are instance of the latter one.
