Abdul Masih (Arabic: عبد المسيح ‎) is a male given name used by Arabic-speaking Christians. It is built from the Arabic words Abd, al- and Masih, meaning "servant of the Messiah", and is thus a theophoric name.

The letter a of the al- is unstressed, and can be transliterated by almost any vowel, often by u. The last element may appear as Messih, Messieh or in other ways, with the whole name subject to variable spacing and hyphenation.
