Note: The use of “al” in Arabic names varies from country to country, and even within families. Some Arabs use “Al”; others use “al”. Some separate the “al” from the following name with a space or a hyphen. Some Arabs use “el” instead of “al.”

The AP’s practice is to use the common accepted form on well-known names or the form preferred by an individual.
