Abdur Razzaq

Abdur Razzaq () is a male Muslim given name, and in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words ''Abd'', ''al-'' and ''Razzaq''. The name means "servant of the all-provider", ''Ar-Razzāq'' being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.

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-Razzaq'', the usual pronunciation corresponds to ''Abd ar-Razzaq''. Alternative transliterations include ''‘Abd ar-Razzaq'', ''Abdul Razzaq'', ''Abdur Razaq'', ''Abdul Razzak'' and others, all subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.

The closely related but less common name Abdul Razzaq () is difficult to distinguish from the other in transliteration, so some uses of it are included below.
