'Abd as-Sattar

Abdu 's-Sattar, Abdus Sattar or Abdul Sattar (Arabic: عبدُالستّار ‘abdu ’s-sattār) is an Arabic Muslim male given name, built on the Arabic words Abd, al- and Sattar. The name means "servant of the Veiler (of sins)".[1][2]

Because the letter s is a sun letter, the letter l of the al- is usually assimilated to it. Thus although the name is written with letters corresponding to Abd al-Sattar, the usual pronunciation corresponds to Abd as-Sattar. Alternative transliterations include Abdus Sattar, Abd al-Sattar and others, all subject to variant spacing and hyphenation.
