ABD-EL-KADIR (عبد القادر).  Arabic name, composed of Abd "servant, slave," Al/El "the," and Kadir "capable, powerful," hence "servant of the powerful one." 

Abd-el-Kadir, born near Mascara, Algeria, about 1807.  His father, Mehi-ed-Deen, was a Maraboot (Marabout) or religious noble of great influence.  Having become distinguished for his piety and talents, he was chosen emir of the Arab tribes in Algeria soon after that region was invaded by the French in 1830... He excelled in martial exercises.  As an equestrian he was unrivalled, even among a people whose warriors may be said to live on horseback.  His quickness of intellect and his memory were extraordinary.  At the age of fourteen he already knew the Koran by heart... He died at Damascus, May 26, 1883. (Universal Pronouncing Dictionary of Biography and Mythology, Thomas, 1915)
