The Banu Bakr ibn Abd Manat (Arabic: بنو بكر‎) were an Arabian tribe of the Hejaz region, in western Arabia and they are a branch of Banu Kinanah the brothers of Quraysh tribe.

During Muhammad's lifetime, they were allies of the Quraish of Mecca.

In 630, their attack against Banu Khuza'a, who had recently become allies of Muhammad, violated the Treaty of Hudaybiyya of 628, which led to the conquest of Mecca by the Muslim armies, which occurred without battle.

They are distinct from the similarly named, but more famous tribe of Bakr ibn Wa'il.
