Answer:

Aluminum sulfide (#Al_2S_3#)

Explanation:

As far as I know, #AlS_3# is not a real compound, so I'll use #Al_2S_3# which may be what your question is asking for..

Since this is a binary ionic compound, the name consists of the cation (#Al#) followed by the anion (#S#) with a suffixe of -ide, so the name of #Al_2S_3# is aluminum sulfide.
