Abdul Malik () is an Arabic (Muslim or Christian) male given name and, in modern usage, surname. It is built from the Arabic words ''Abd'', ''al-'' and ''Malik''. The name means "servant of the King", in the Christian instance 'King' meaning 'King of Kings' as in Jesus Christ and in Islam, ''Al-Malik'' 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 ''e''. So the first part can appear as Abdel, Abdul or Abd-al. The second part may appear as Malik, Malek or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.
There is a distinct but related name, Abdul Maalik (), meaning "servant of the Owner", referring to the Qur'anic name ''Mālik-ul-Mulk''. The two names are difficult to distinguish in transliteration, and some of the names below are instance of the latter one.
