Baiyaa (Bayaa’) (Arabic: البياع) is a middle-class neighborhood in the Al Rashid district in western Baghdad, Iraq, along the Baghdad Airport Road. Al-A'amel is to the west and Al-Saydiya to the south. It contains separate Sunni and Shiite enclaves within it. It has been calm during the Iraq War, but many stores have closed and both Shiite and Sunni families from Baiyaa have fled the neighborhood in May 2007 as violence increased.
