    Hadrat or Hadhrat (Ḥaḍrah, Arabic: حضرة‎; Hazret or Hazrat) 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" (for judges), "His Majesty" (for royalty), or "His Holiness" (for high clergy). There are twelve great Hazrats 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, Hazrat Hajar (Hagar) and Hazrat Inayat Khan.

    This word may sometimes also appear after the names of respected Muslim personalities, such as imams, in the form of "Hazretleri" in Islamic culture. This is similar to the Japanese honorific "sama".
