Abdul Jalil

Abdul Jalil (Arabic: عبد الجليل‎) is a Muslim male given name, also used by Christians, and in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Jalil. The name means "servant of the Exalted", Al-Jalīl being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.[1][2]

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 Jalil, Jaleel, Jolil, Galil (Egyptian spelling) or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation. The most commonly found spelling variations are Abdel Jaleel and Abdul Jaleel.
