Banū ‘Abd ad-Dār (Arabic: بنو عبد الدار‎‎, "Sons of the Servant of the House"—referring to the Kaaba) is a sub-clan of the Arab Quraysh tribe.


Their progenitor is Abd-al-Dar ibn Qusai ibn Kilab.[1] Historically, this tribe carried the banner in war, and Muhammad continued that tradition. In battles between the Makkans and the Muslims, the banner was frequently carried on both sides by a member of this tribe.
