ʻAbd al-Karīm (ALA-LC romanization of Arabic: عبد الكريم) is a Muslim male given name and, in modern usage, also a surname. It is built from the Arabic words ʻabd and al-Karīm, one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names.[1][2] It means "servant of the most Generous". It is rendered as Abdolkarim in Persian, Abdulkerim in Albania, Bosnia and Abdülkerim in Turkey.
