Abdul Jabbar (Arabic: عبد الجبار ‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) is a Muslim male given name, and in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Jabbar. The name means "servant of the All-compeller", Al-Jabbar 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 Jabbar, Jabar or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.
