Ghazi is a title given to Muslim warriors or champions. It may be used out of respect or officially.
Many of the Ottoman Sultans wore this title officially (as in Caliph Sultan Ghazi Mehmed II Khan Caesar), along with Khan and Caesar. The Mughal Emperors also officially used the term Badshah Ghazi and sometimes also added the terms Alam Panah and Zilallah. Muslim champions, such as Saladin and Ahmad ibn Ibrahim, may have this title added to their name out of respect, respectively Ghazi Saladin and Ahmad Al-Ghazi.
