{{#invoke:Hatnote|hatnote}}

Abdul Samad (Arabic: عبد الصمد‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) is a male Muslim given name, built on the Arabic words Abd, al- and Samad. The name means "servant of the Everlasting", al-Samad 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>

Because the letter s is a sun letter, the letter l of the al- is assimilated to it. Thus although the name is written with letters corresponding to Abd al-Samad, the usual pronunciation corresponds to Abd as-Samad. Alternative transliterations include Abdus Samad and others, all subject to variant spacing and hyphenation. It may refer to
