Abdus Shakur

Abdus Shakur () is a male Muslim given name, built on the Arabic words ''Abd'', ''al-'' and ''Shakur''. The name means "servant of the All-thankful", ''Ash-Shakūr'' being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.

Because the Arabic letter corresponding to sh is a sun letter, the letter l of the ''al-'' is assimilated to it. Thus although the name is written with letters corresponding to ''Abd al-Shakur'', the usual pronunciation corresponds to ''Abd ash-Shakur''. Alternative transliterations include ''Abdul Shakoor'' and others, all subject to variant spacing and hyphenation.
