Abdur Razzaq (Arabic: عبد الرزاق ‎) 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.[1][2]

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 Abdel Razik (Arabic: عبد الرازق ‎) is difficult to distinguish from the other in transliteration, so some uses of it are included below.
