  • Hadrat or Hadhrat is an honorific Arabic title used to honour a person. The literal translation of Hadrah is "Presence". In usage it is comparable to traditional Western honorifics addressing high officials, such as "Your Honour", "His Majesty" or "His Holiness". There are twelve great Hazrat's in the Islamic faith, among those being Muhammad, Abraham, Noah, Moses and Jesus. The term was also loaned into Turkish and Bosnian as "Hazreti". Examples of "Hazrat" used as a title are: Hazrat Muhammad, Hazrat musa, Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Umar Farooq, Hazrat Uthman, Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq, and Hazrat Hajar. This word may sometimes also appear after the names of respected Muslim personalities, such as imams, in Islamic culture, similarly to the Japanese honorific "sama".
