Ata-ur-Rahman

Ata-ur-Rahman () is a masculine Islamic given name. It is built from the Arabic words ''Ata'', ''al-'' and ''Rahman''. The name means "gift of the most merciful", ''ar-Rahman'' 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, usually 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 and Urdu with letters corresponding to ''Ata al-Rahman'', the usual pronunciation corresponds to ''Ata ur-Rahman''. The transliteration ''Atta'' often appears for the first element and ''Rehman'' for the last, all subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.

Notable bearers of the name include *Ataur Rahman Khan (1907–1991), former Prime Minister of Bangladesh *Ataur Rahman (poet) (1925–1999), Bangladeshi poet *Khan Ataur Rahman (1928–1997), Bangladeshi film actor, director, producer, screenplay writer, music composer, and singer *Ataur Rahman Khan Khadim (1933-1971), Bangladeshi academic *Ataur Rahman (born 1941), Bangladeshi theater actor and director *Ataur Rahman Mazarbhuiya, Indian Politician *Atta ur Rahman (scientist) (born 1942), Pakistani scientist *Atiur Rahman (born 1951), Bangladeshi economist *Maulana Atta Ur Rehman (born 1965), Pakistani politician *Ataurrehman (born 1968), Indian politician *Ata-ur-Rehman (cricketer) (born 1975), Pakistani cricketer *Atta-Ur-Rehman Chishti, known as Rehman Chishti (born 1978), British politician *Atta ur Rehman Memon, Pakistani electrical engineer Provided by Wikipedia
