Rabud (Arabic: ﺩﺍﺒﺭ, also spelled Khirbet Rabud) is a Palestinian village in the southern West Bank, part of the Hebron Governorate, located 13 kilometers southwest of Hebron and about 5 km northwest of as-Samu. Rabud had a population of 2,262 in the 2007 census by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS). The principal families are the Huraibat, Quteinah, al-Uqela and Shanan.
According to research by the Applied Research Institute-Jerusalem, Rabud's history dates back to the Canaanite period in Palestine, but that the modern inhabitants of the village migrated from the Arabian Peninsula. A village council was established by the Palestinian National Authority in 1993 to administer Rabud's civil affairs and provide limited municipal services. There is currently one mosque, Salah ad-Din Mosque, which serves the village.
