Abdur Rahim (Arabic: عبد الرحيم‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) is a male Muslim given name, and in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Rahim. The name means "servant of the most merciful", Ar-Rahim 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 u. Because the letter r is a sun letter, the letter l of the al- is assimilated to it. Thus, although the name is written in Arabic with letters corresponding to Abd al-Rahim, the usual pronunciation corresponds to Abd ar-Rahim. Alternative transliterations include Abdul Rahim, Abdur Raheem, Abdul Rahiem and others, all subject to variant spacing and hyphenation.
