Abdul Ahad (Arabic: عبد الاحد) is an Arabic male given name. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Ahad. The name means "servant of the only One", Al-Ahad being one of the names of God for Arabic-speaking, but not Christians, only Muslims with their belief in Allah. It is listed 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. So the first part can appear as Abdel, Abdul or Abd-al. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.
