Al-Amīn ‘the trustworthy’ is an honorific title of the
Prophet Muhammad. The term is used in combination with other words to
form compound names: for example, Rụh-ul-Amīn ‘faithful
spirit’ is an epithet of the Angel Gabriel mentioned in the Qur’an
(26:193). Al-Amīn (787–813) was the name of the sixth Abbasid
khalif of Baghdad.
