The name means "servant of the All-compeller", Al-Jabbar being one of the names of God in the Qur'an, which give rise to the Muslim theophoric names. 
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 Jabbar, Jabar or in other ways. The whole name is subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.
